My friend gave me this recipe and I tweaked it a bit to my liking, but it is definitely one of my favorite side dishes!!


6 Cups of corn ( Fresh is best, if not I’ve used frozen white corn or sweet corn)

1/2 red onion chopped

Juice of 1/2 a squeezed lime + zest

2 TBS olive oil

1 TBS agave

1 Tsp salt

5-7 basil leaves julienned

pinch of red pepper flakes ( optional)

Mix all ingredients together. Add basil last. Increase lime juice if desired and serve either hot or cold! If serving hot add 1 TBS butter once corn is warmed before adding other ingredients. If serving cold chill in refrigerator for a few hours or overnight.
