Grilled Corn Salad

All good BBQ needs a worthy side dish – and this Grilled Corn Salad is a perfect side dish that just screams summer.

You start with some good, sweet corn and throw it on your grill – husk and all. Let it steam in the husk (it will make shucking it so much easier). After about 5 minutes open the grill and turn the corn so it’s cooking evenly. Do it again in another 5 minutes.

Then after about 15 total minutes, your corn should be nice and tender. Now it’s time to get a little grill flavor – shuck the corn and place it right back directly on theGrillGrates (check these GrillGates out here >>). Keep the lid open and turn the corn for the last 5 minutes (or until it has the char you like).

Once the corn is done – you could serve it just like that. It’s delicious with a little butter and salt. Just dive right in!

But for this recipe you cut it off the cob and add a few veggies and a little creaminess – to make this delicious, summer-time treat of Grilled Corn Salad.

  1. Malcom,

    I love your website and I appreciate you sharing your recipes and success with everyone. I want to ask if using plastic oven baking bags can be used to wrap meats instead of foil? I normally use foil but for larger items such as pork butts, it can be more difficult to get a good seal, or at least for a novice like me. I appreciate your feedback. Happy Grillin’!

      Yeah – that will work for storing meat in the fridge for a short time. Same as using ziplock bags. For freezing meat, I suggest vacuum sealing it or wrapping it in the wax-backed butcher paper.
