Roasted Corn Salad

Roasted Corn Salad

Corn or maize was first cultivated by the indigenous people of Mexico over 7,000 years ago. It migrated through North to South America. It was introduced in Europe by Christopher Columbus. Native Americans bred corn from wild grasses and taught European settlers how to grow it.
