Sweet Roasted Corn with Lemon Basil Vinaigrette

July 5, 2010

Author Notes:

Two things are abundant during summer; sweet corn and garden fresh basil. Offer this version to your guests and they will never eat corn off the cob again. Summer Bliss! I hope you enjoy it! - Cheryl

I roasted only half the corn and left the other half raw for more texture. I loved as is but customized it to my taste and added the zest of the lemon, subed siracha for the cipotle and mixed in some flaked smoked haddock. Yummy!!!
Sounds great... can't wait to try it!

My friend said this was one of her favorites but I was timid to taste -- finally gave in and Oh my Gosh -- I LOVE THIS STUFF. I may never be able to make it like you do but will dream of it often!!
