Grilled Corn Salad


Here is another side dish from our Kentucky Derby Party. This is a great alternative to corn on the cob. It's easy to eat and has some new flavors added to it. This recipe can easily be doubled so give this a try at your next barbeque! Sorry about the picture. I had to crop it because I took the picture after half of it was gone and it just looked funny in the big bowl half empty!

Grilled Corn Salad

Serves 4-6 as a side dish

4 ears fresh corn, husks removed
1 red bell pepper, roasted (can use from jar)
½ red onion diced
1 lemon, juiced
1 lime, juiced
Salt & Pepper to taste
Chopped parsley (optional)

Brush corn with olive oil on all sides. Sprinkle w/ salt & pepper, reserve extra oil. While grilling corn (directly on grill), chop onion, parsley, and red pepper. Combine in a bowl. Add lemon & lime juice. When corn is cooked (should have char marks) remove kernels w/ a knife and add to bowl. Add the rest of oil and adjust seasonings. Add more oil if needed.

Boy that just sounds like SUMMER!! Can't wait for the fresh sweet corn to start coming in locally. Fresh off the cob ... can't beat it. Thanks for a great recipe!

Yum! I make a very similar recipe but with more of a Mexican flair. How easy it would be to change up a few ingredients and give it a whole new twist! Thanks!
