Instructions Checklist
  • Trim corn husks of any long hanging parts and excess silk. Place in a large bowl with water and soak for 1 hour.

  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate.

  • Place corn on the grill and turn every 6 minutes 1/4 turn until all 4 sides have been grilled, about 24 minutes. Allow corn to cool until cold enough to handle easily.

  • Remove husks from cooled corn and cut corn off into a serving bowl. Add cherry tomatoes, red pepper, onion, and basil.

  • Whisk together olive oil, rice vinegar, lime juice, salt, garlic, lime zest, and pepper in a small bowl until well blended. Pour dressing over corn salad and toss to combine. Cover and refrigerate for a minimum of 1 hour.

Cook's Notes:

Grilling the corn in the husk makes it sweeter. The silk breaks down and gives it a great taste that needs no seasoning.

You can substitute fresh garlic with 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder. If you like, use canola oil instead of olive oil.

The longer the salad is refrigerated, the better it tastes.

I loved the flavors of this recipe and it was a perfect summer dish. I wasn’t crazy about the Basil in the recipe. I would have preferred cilantro because the flavor profile seemed Southwestern with the lime juice. Read More

Delicious and truly summer on a plate! I did modify it to be more WW friendly and since it was a last minute dinner addition I had to use what I had on hand. I used a bag of frozen corn thawed and drained and roasted red pepper in place.of fresh because that's what I had. I think I'm gonna add some.minced jalapeños next time to kick it up even more. This will definitely be a summertime staple. Thanks for sharing ?? Read More
