    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!  -  17 Jun 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I, too, blanched the corn for 1 minute. This recipe needs more dressing, some black pepper, and can do with less onion! Otherwise, good for using garden produce. But, please be realistic re. prep time. No way you can de-husk and meticulously de-silk 8 ears of corn as well as do all the chopping in 15 minutes!!!!!  -  25 Jul 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This recipe gets 5 stars across the board! I could not believe how delicious and refreshing this salad was considering how easy and fast it was to make. I had never had raw corn before I made this - it is unbelievably sweet and juicy! This is a must for your next cookout, picnic or pass a dish get-together! Kids love it!  -  18 Jul 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
