Perfect Summer Side: Grilled Corn

Grilled corn on the cob is one of summer's great pleasures. Last summer I loved pairing my corn with creamy herb butters, and this summer I've taken to a light coating with lime juice, mayonnaise, chili powder, and feta cheese. The mixture is brushed on the corn after it's char-grilled and the limes provide a zingy freshness. The chili powder gives it a balancing heat, and the feta brings a nice saltiness. Guests are sure to marvel at your ingenuity when you serve this corn paired with burgers, grilled steaks, or BBQ chicken. So take a look at the recipe now, just

4 ears of corn
2 tablespoons reduced-fat mayonnaise
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1/8 teaspoon chili powder
2 ounces finely grated feta cheese

  1. Heat grill to high. Soak corn in cold water, turning occasionally, 10 minutes.
  2. Transfer to grill. Cover; cook, turning, until husks are charred, 10 minutes. Remove.
  3. Using a kitchen towel, pull back husks; remove and discard corn silks. Return corn to grill (with husks pulled back and off heat). Cover; cook, turning, until kernels are charred in spots, 10 to 15 minutes.
  4. Combine reduced-fat mayonnaise, lime juice, and chili powder; brush on cooked corn. Dust with finely grated feta cheese. Season with coarse salt; serve with lime wedges.

Serves 4.

Whenever my aunt does a BBQ at her house, she always grills some corn. My big fat mexican family has always loved it. I prefer mine with butter instead of mayo. Then I add cotija cheese, Amor hot sauce and a little bit of lemon juice. That's the way we do it!!! Yum...i wonder when our next BBQ is...

that is actually Mexican "fast food"- there are corn stands literally EVERYWHERE in Mexico, and they prepare the corn for you this way. It's the yummiest thing in the world... one tip though, the way you really should prepare it is put the mayo on the corn, then sprinkle chili powder, salt, and cheese, and then lime juice. If you mix it all together it kind of minimizes the bold flavors of many of the ingredients, they should be layered. ;)
