If I can add to the dish with corn, tomatoes ,and okra...deep fried pork chops smothered with the corn mixture ...with tomato sauce in the oven....but place the chops so that some parts of the pork chops are crunchy.....on a bed of steam rice...uuuuugood.....back to Martha...

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! Karen Karen

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? Annie
