Grilled Corn Salad

I normally just grill my sweet corn add butter and salt and pepper or use a compound butter with spices and I am done.  I wanted to do something a bit different with this wonderful BBQ side so I went trolling online for inspiration and after getting some ideas I came up with this.

  • 2 ears of corn charred on the grill, kernels cut off of the cob
  • 2 Roma tomatoes, deseeded and copped to your liking
  • ¼ white or red onion sliced into half rings
  • Hand full of fresh basil, leafs torn
  • Several sprigs of fresh thyme leaves, discarded stems
  • 1 lime juiced
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Pinch of cayenne (optional)

Grill corn over direct heat turning often until cooked through and some char marks form, do this before cooking main course and assemble while other stuff is cooking.  Cut kernels off of cob and combine with rest of ingredients and toss together.  Makes about 4 servings.

Cook’s Notes:  Next time I make this I will be adding a can of black beans that are rinsed.  I might leave out the basil for this version and add cilantro to replace it, should be good.  Anyone tries this before I do, let me know how it turns out in a comment!
