to prepare the corn, simply shuck it, throw it in some tinfoil with a pat of butter and add a little bit of lime.  Roll the corn up in the tin foil and throw it on the grill

since these are little sliders roll out some tin foil for the grill.  The corn helps hold in in place.

When the corn is done cooking, about 7-10 minutes, remove it from the grill and from the foil.  Careful, its hot.  Take your knife and slice the kernels off.

for the salsa mix, just simply add the corn to the mix.

add your condiments as you wish.  The corn salsa is nice, but so is just a little ketchup and mustard
