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!
