Author Notes: I created this recipe to compliment a summer night, while watching the sunset with a cold drink in your hand. The fresh ingredients are best used when picked from your own garden or bought at a local farmers market. Perfect dish for entertaining! - Shea. - Shea.
Food52 Review: I heartily recommend this very beautiful, very colorful, and very flavor-packed refreshingly fresh salsa. I was hesitant to bruise the cilantro, but this is an interesting technique that brings out more of the essence of the cilantro. When I first grilled the corn, I burned the ears badly. On the recommendation of a friend, I soaked my corn, still in the husks, in water for 30 minutes and grilling the corn came out well. After chilling overnight the salsa settled a bit more with the salt drawing out the tomato juices further. It was still fresh and more delicious! - Sagegreen - A&M
