Reviews for Layered Grilled Corn Salad
"I didn't grill the corn, just cooked my usual way--start in cold water and bring to a boil for a minute or so and it's done. Don't over cook. I took the seeds out of the fresh tomatoes from my garden and used a couple extra. Chopped the onion and used more fresh basil than called for. Used Good Seasons Italian dressing. It's a wonderful salad and I will make again and again when corn and tomatoes are fresh from the garden. Family thought it was great."
"Wonderful salad! Perfect when your garden is flourishing with tomatoes. I browned the frozen corn in the skillet instead of grilling fresh corn for ease and that worked great. I will be repeating this recipe again. Thanks for sharing."
