It seems that adding more peppers (perhaps a couple of different varieties), more tomatoes, and cutting back on the corn would make this great recipe more diabetes friendly. The fresh corn is delicious, but it is also packed with carbs, while all the other ingredients are naturally pretty low in carbs.

We use corn that we buy from the Amish and it is so sweet, we don't have to grill it. But, we have done so and I like the way it tastes that way too. :-) Good suggestions Afarmlady and Sly Kitty!

I make this quite often, but I use corn that has been grilled. I never have used raw, but I sure eat fresh corn raw so why not. Grilling gives it a little sweeter flavor. I also have added fresh herbs and even a little watercress.
