Cilantro & Lime Corn Salad

Is it OK to tell a guest what to bring to a party?


Talking to my dear friend S, I found myself laughing so hard my eyes were watering. S was ranting on about people, and how all they bring to BBQs is potatoes salad, baked beans, and cheap ass beer. She declared this year was going be different and each guest would bring an amazing dish and a bottle. I had to cut her off and say “Why are you telling me this?


She snorted, “Because you set the bar! Do you remember the last dish you brought? Shit, people are still talking about it.” I laughed said “I see (secretly glad that had been her response, as I certainly have never brought any of those things to a gathering at a friend’s home unless requested!).” What I can do, she said bring something amazing. I think this is quite an amazing  simple BBQ side dish.

  • Juice of  one limes
  • 1 tablespoon butter

    I’m wondering if ice cream with garlic, cilantro, and lime would be good, seems to go so well with so much
