Super simple to make, crunchy and full of flavour.
The corn is raw, so be sure to use the freshest sweetest corn you can find. As for the zucchini blossoms, if you have zucchini growing in your garden right now, this is a nice way to take advantage of those blossoms. Just be sure you have not sprayed any chemicals on your plants.
We like this as a side with BBQ Chicken.
