Very quick and tasty sidedish that can be altered to taste, almost every ingredient except the corn is optional. Very pretty side dish also. I've made this for many different people and haven't had one complaint yet. It's especially good if you just don't have the time to cook but don't want junk food.

Recipe Ingredients for Cilantro Tomato Corn Salad

3 ears fresh corn
1/4 cup butter, melted
2 plum tomatoes, chopped
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely chopped
1/2 small red onion, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
1/2 tsp salt

Recipe Directions for Cilantro Tomato Corn Salad

  1. Peel back corn husks, but leave them attached at the bottom. Remove the silks, and fold husks back up over the corn. Place on a dinner plate, and cook in the microwave for 5 minutes on High power, turning corn once half way through. Cool until cool enough to touch, then slice corn kernels from the cob and place them in a serving bowl.

  2. Stir butter into the corn along with the tomatoes, jalapeno, red onion, garlic and cilantro. Season with salt, pepper, and seasoning blend. Mix well, taste, and adjust seasoning if necessary. Some people like the salad warm, but I prefer to chill it a little before serving.
