  • Cook the corn on the preheated grill, turning occasionally, until the corn is tender and specks of black appear, about 10 minutes; set aside until just cool enough to handle. Slice the kernels off of the cob and place into a bowl.

  • Combine the warm corn kernels with the green pepper, diced tomato, onion, cilantro, and olive oil. Season with salt and pepper; toss until evenly mixed. Set aside for at least 30 minutes to allow flavors to blend before serving.

Overall, very good! Plus it's a great way to use up leftover grilled corn. I subbed cucumber for the green pepper as a personal preference. And I definitely agree with some of the other reviewers that this needs lime juice. I also added a bit of sugar to the "dressing" and let this set in the fridge for a few hours to let the flavors blend together. Very simple, very tasty and bursting with color! Read More

I have made a version of this for years, but this recipe is lacking a key ingredient which is the juice of 2-3 limes. I also only use red peppers as they are milder. A trick to this for the corn is to roast in husks in oven at 400 degrees for 30 minutes. Husks and silk fall off and the taste is just as good, if not better than grilled corn. Bon Apetite! Read More

I love this recipe. I make it slightly different. I use red or yellow bell peppers because I can't stand the taste of green peppers, and I add about half a small container of feta cheese to the salad, and a few dashes of cayenne pepper. It is perfect to accompany a barbequed dinner! Read More

I used cherry tomatoes sliced, omitted the green pepper, added an avocado diced, lime juice and lime zest and it was outstanding. Definetly needs the lime and avocado. Read More

I was looking for a way to use up some frozen cobbettes and this seemed like a good way. Actually it turned out absolutely fantastic. Aside from using the cobbettes (which we did grill) the only adjustments I made were to add a splash of lime juice as others suggested and to use more tomato. We absolutely loved it!!!! We can't wait to try it with fresh corn and see if it can actually get better!!! Read More

I didn't prefer this by itself but I put it on nacho's with some cheese and spicy sauce and it added so much depth of flavor to a finger food. Tasty! Read More
