1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 cup chopped cilantro, fresh
2 Tablespoons lime juice, fresh
salt/pepper, to taste
Dressing: whisk all dressing ingredients into small bowl. Set aside.
Prep Ears of Corn: leaving husk on, microwave both ears of corn together for 4 minutes. Let cool. Cut corn off of cob. Place in large bowl.
Dip: Add all dip ingredients to large bowl with corn.
Combine: right before serving pour the dressing into the large bowl with the dip. Toss gently to combine.
- 2 Tablespoons lime juice is equivalent to 1 large lime or two small- If you are making ahead of time place ingredients in one bowl and make dressing in another bowl. Don't mix the dressing with the dip until serving.- Store in fridge for up to 5 days or freeze in ziplock bag.
