These were just amazing! We had them with lunch. I hope you can consider these a condiment and can enter this under that category. I am going to upload a few photos for you. Please feel free to delete them if you do want to have them here, but I wanted to show you how they came out. I added some lime leaf basil, mint, and some spikey native coriander since I have so many herbs right now from my tiny garden.

This looks truly wonderful, as does your grilled corn salad...which is what I started making last night, but with a three sisters spin! Hope to upload that by tomorrow...have a ton of photosof the whole grilling process.
