Great choice for lesson about seeds we eat!  Used half the vinegar and added 1/2 tsp. cumin.  Like frozen corn best.

The easiest salad, ready in minutes! Made it with baked fish and it went together so nicely. My husband doesn't like cilantro sadly, but I added garlic powder, salad and pepper and the worked well. And we did use frozen corn which worked perfectly.
