Grilled Corn SaladAll 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. Print
