Author Notes

Living in Santa Cruz, it seems that everyone has a different dietary restriction and this recipe tends to satisfy everyone. Transports easily and doesn’t require refrigeration. Tastes best at room temperature and eaten same day. The original recipe called for roasted corn tossed with a honey/lime dressing, but was way too sweet. I switched it up using raw corn and omitted the honey and just used lime juice. The optional jalapeno lends some bite to the dish —Octopus and Owl
