Corn Husk Boats

Use the corn husk boats for “containers” in which to serve colorful salsa fresca medleys. 

Soak 8 dried corn husks (used to make tamales) in water for several hours; pat dry. Tear 2 husks into 1/2-inch strips for tying the ends of the corn husk boats. Place a whole small lime in the center of each moistened husk and wrap the husk around the lime, tying at both ends with the torn strips. Allow to dry; remove the lime, leaving a cavity for filling. Makes 6 “boats.” May be made days in advance and stored in airtight containers.
