This is a fantastic recipe that can be changed by adding Rotel tomatoes and green chili’s, fresh jalapeño for another change. The options are endless. The basics are perfect!!!! Fiona

This recipe is very similar to a side dish I had at a wedding reception. It is so simple to put together and the taste is wonderful. The only thing I changed was the amount of cilantro, only using two tablespoons.

This was so delicious and so simple. I used fresh corn cut off the cob and tomatoes from the garden. I will definitely be making again!

Loved it and so easy! I even fixed some corn and just put lime (which I love) and cilantro on it .

Incredibly easy and delicious! The freshness of this dish is wonderful and is the perfect way to use up fresh-off-the-cob corn or bring a touch of summer to brighten up a winter dinner!
