  1. I tried this recipe for a small party this weekend (about 1/2 recipe) and everybody loved it! I used the corn right off the cob (didn't even blanch it) used less onion and more dressing than the recipe called for. Very fresh and tasty! I made it the night before so the flavors would have - Read more ...
  2. Colorful and flavorful! Perfect for summer. I added a lot of chopped fresh basil. It was a big hit.
  3. I made this for a dinner gathering and it was fantastic. I used frozen supersweet corn from Costco and just rinsed it, as it is gently blanched already. I added green onion, cilantro and minced jalapeno. I'll need to make double for the next get together!

  8. I absolutely loved making this recipe. We were giving my mother a bbq for Mother's Day and I made this dish to bring. Everyone raved about this dish. Even the kids. It's so quick and simple to make yet tastes like you spent quite a lot of time making it. The only difference I made - Read more ...
  9. I really thought this sounded good but it didnt go over well at all in my family not sure what it is exactly but something just didnt taste right.
  10. This is good. I used canned and frozen corn, and used fat-free italian dressing. Very good.
