I made this with roasted frozen corn for the convenience. It was a very easy recipe. I can't say this was an OMG recipe but it was okay. Next time I make it I will use my own pesto. I use store bought this first try. it was something different for me to try. Read More

Made this last night it was very good! Good summer time salad. I did make my own pesto and left out the lemon zest didn't have. My husband said I could make it anytime for him. Read More

This was pretty good and a nice way to do something different with grilled corn. I purchased a pesto I had never used before and it was heavier on the basil and parm flavor than I'm used to so I chose not to top the salad with additional. The pesto does overpower the corn some so I'd use less next time. Read More
