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!

I really thought this sounded good but it didnt go over well at all in my family , not sure what it is exactly but something just didnt taste right.

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!!!!!

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!

I tried this recipe for a small party this weekend (about 1/2 recipe), and everybody loved it! I used the corn right off the cob (didn't even blanch it), used less onion and more dressing than the recipe called for. Very fresh and tasty! I made it the night before so the flavors would have a chance to really come out!

Colorful and flavorful! Perfect for summer. I added a lot of chopped, fresh basil. It was a big hit.

This is good. I used canned and frozen corn, and used fat-free italian dressing. Very good.

Took this salad to a picnic and it was a hit! Blanched the corn for about 30 seconds in boiling water before cutting it off the ear and omitted the red pepper. Added dressing to taste. This was awesome!
