How to Cook Corn on the Cob:

There are several methods to cooking corn and all of them will work for this corn salad. We used grilled corn in this recipe because grilling gives it a smokey sweetness that is completely irresistible.
  • How to grill corn on the cob: we soak the corn with the husks on and then place them directly on the grill for 18-20 minutes on med/high heat rotating every 5 minutes.  . 
  • How to bake corn on the cob: Place husks directly on the center oven rack and bake at 350˚F for 30 minutes. No need to soak the corn.
  • How to boil corn on the cob: This is the quickest method. Place the shucked corn in a pot, cover with water, bring to a boil and add sugar (yes sugar!) then boil 15 minutes.
