I have some corn on the cob but of course I could cut it off and use. Just looking for a side dish to go with a potato bake and minty peas. Kind of running low on ingredients. It is to go with some sort of chicken bake that is still to be devised. Lol got a few dietary restriction with that one for a friend, but will work it out. Any ideas?

Turns out my friend was not allowed to eat corn so I canned that idea for a side for that meal, but this looks awesome so I am saving it for ME! lol If you make it and feel it needs any changes can you please come back and tell us. I can't see a single ingredient in there that I don't love. My citrus trees are so full that they are starting to drop fruit on the ground so I will be picking this week then making anything up that uses the fruit or juice. Thank you.
