This recipe’ s ideal for dinner delicious and easy to make
Made this so many times. I like to leave out the cheese and jalapeños but it’s great for packed lunch. It takes about a half hour to make once you get good at it
I made this with heirloom tomatoes and loved it! Took it to work during the week and sliced up extra avocado. So easy to make and tasty. Thanks for a great recipe!
Anybody know the nutritional content?
I think you can go online and google the contents. Actually, if you find the recipe on Yummly, it will provide the nutrients for you. I haven’t looked for you but this is how you can find out.
Hi there! Love this recipe! This will be my ump-teenth time making it. My boyfriend and I make these into tacos, add a little salsa and avocado on there and we have ourselves a good healthy dinner that we can stretch over a few nights. This time I’m going to try to swap out one tomato for a red pepper and adding an extra jalapeño to change it up a bit. Thanks for posting!
I’m so glad you like it Kate! Love the idea of making them into tacos with salsa and avocado.
switch the tomatoes for red peppers!!
What kind of tomatoes do you recommend? Would grape tomatoes cut in half work?
Hi Laura, grape tomatoes cut in half would work fine! You’ll need about 1 1/2 cups.
What a tasty salad this was. Thanks for sharing it.
This salad is delicious! Thank you for the recipe. I soaked the jalapeño with the onion in the lime juice. And I used panela cheese. 2 ears of leftover corn on the cob. I could keep eating this all night! Definitely making it for the next potluck. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
Thanks for a delicious recipe! I made a double batch for a BBQ and it was well received. Leftovers are even better! I skipped the tomatoes (adding more lime juice to compensate for acid of tomatoes) and doubled the jalapeños. I used trader joes roasted corn. yum!!!
Great Christine, I’m so glad you liked the recipe! Isn’t the Trader Joe’s roasted corn wonderful? So much flavor.
Delicious! I swapped the lime juice for lemon juice and it turned out great! Next time I would even add another Jalapeño pepper. Thanks for sharing! :)
This was delicious! A couple recommendations – use a little less water for the quinoa – 1.5cups instead of 2. I used fresh mozzarella pearls instead of queso fresco because they don’t crumble. The texture is different and the cheese offers a smooth contrast to the jalapeno. If you don’t like onion as much as I do, consider a sweet onion rather than a red. Also, the jalapeno could be subbed out for any pepper with milder heat, if desired.
I just made this recipe and I cannot stop ‘taste testing’ it- lol! Can’t wait to serve it at my cookout this evening;) Thank you so much!
This has become a summer staple for my recipe collection. I get fresh corn and other veggies from the farmers market and it always turns out fantastic, though I always omit the cheese. I have no idea why! Hah.
So this may be a silly question, but I can store the leftovers in the fridge right? I want to have it for lunch tomorrow at work. Thanks :)
Hi Lynn, sure you can refrigerate!
Wonderful! Love this salad, such a great combination of flavors. Used fresh corn and fresh Mozzarella. Took quite a bit longer than 15 minutes, but well worth it – will make this one again.
Hi. If you make it ahead of time, do you serve it chilled, let it warm to room temperature or warm it? Thanks! It looks delish!
Either way, whatever tastes better to you. I would serve it at room temp.
Great recipe! One big recommendation: amp up the amount of tomatoes a ton. The deliciousness of the recipe is directly proportionate to the amount of tomatoes in it, I’ve found.
This is a great recipe. All my co-workers loved it at our potluck. I choose it because it is a healthy alternative and “out-of-the-box” for most people at my work. I would love it if Nutritional Facts went along with it. It would help me promote a more healthy lifestyle choice.
Hi Joe, I have neither the time nor the expertise to provide nutritional information on the recipes, but there are plenty of online tools available for you to do that on your own if you need that information.
I made this today, with a few variations. I used white onion because I didn’t have red, no tomatoes, and frozen cilantro instead of fresh. I don’t know how it was supposed to taste, but I am quite happy!
