A New Twist on Roasted Corn Recipe

My husband and I had the opportunity to enjoy a date night at The Mission restaurant in Scottsdale, Arizona.

We got to sit outside in the delightfully warm weather on their back patio.  While we mulled over their endless menu, our waitress (who looked like a Jenna Marbles look alike), brought us mini margaritas!  Which were quite delicious.

The first thing that I saw on the appetizer menu was Grilled Street Corn.  I had to order it because it reminded me of our babymoon in Puerto Vallarta.  Each night I would seek out the street vendors serving piping hot roasted corn and decorate it with the various toppings that they offered.  I was really excited to see what The Mission’s version of street corn would look like.  Sure enough, it looked like a corn lollipop dripping in dressing.  It was absolutely delicious.  So delicious that when I got back home to Seattle, I was determined to make the dressing.  I have the perfect roasted corn recipe!
