Delicious!! I followed the recipe exactly. I didn't realize how wonderful roasted corn and garlic slices can be. I could just eat that by itself. We also ate this with whole grain Tostitos for our Sunday lunch. Made for Zaar 1-2-3 Hits Tag Game 2011.

This is a very flavorful and healthy snack. We enjoyed this with whole grain Tostitos. I used frozen corn and just left out the water. We will enjoy this often. Thanks for posting. Made for PRMR.

That is a great salsa. Very garlicky, but we like that. I needed 4 corn cobs to get 2c of corn. Roasting brings out the sweetness of the corn and the garlic; the lime juice and cilantro make it fresh. I'll make this one again.
