    Shouldn't this say - cooked corn?

    I made this salad but substituted the scallions for finally chops white onions and finely chopped green and red bell pepper... was a hit! Was perfect beside grilled fish and shrimp skewers.

    I took it to a much higher level . . .
    I added:
    Cilantro instead of basil
    sliced olives
    diced avocado
    bacon bites
    Mmmm, It's a meal people! and everyone came back for 2 & 3rd servings!

    I saw this and just had to make it right away as I had fresh sweet corn in the fridge. I decided to add avocado and, oh my heavens, it takes it to another level!!! The lime dressing makes it perfection. It will be a staple in my family just like Lucinda's Rose's Thanksgiving artichoke side dish. Love, love, love your recipes!!! Thanks so much and keep'em coming!

    I added another tomato to balance the 6 ears of corn. The lime flavor was fabulous. The end result was a bit disappointing , the salad was much too watery. why? I followed the receipe exactly. I want to make it again, can you please let me know how to correct the much too much liquid? Did I squeeze too much of the cob to release the corn milk?
