Grilled Summer Corn Salad

Summer calls for grilling, and grilling is what must be done. Whether the perfect steak (medium-rare, just saying) or BBQ grilled chicken or a juicy cheeseburger, every main dish deserves a great side dish. Charred vegetables from the grill make for that tasty side. One of my favourite original recipes that go with any of your summer dishes is my Grilled Summer Corn Salad. I hope you love the taste of this salad recipe as much as we do.

  • 8 ears corn in the husk
  • ½ medium onion sweet and diced
  • 1 cup tomatoes halved
  • 1 wheel cheese Queso Fresco and crumbled
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil extra virgin
  • ¼ cup rice vinegar seasoned
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch pepper


  • Preheat grill for a few minutes. When the grill is nice and hot, throw the corn on and grill until charred, turning so that each side gets equally charred. The best part of cooking in the husk is that the corn steams itself without burning, and the charred exterior will impart its flavour on the corn. Pull the corn off the grill and let them cool enough until you can handle them. Clean off the husks, making sure not to leave any of the strings behind.
  • Slice the kernels off of the cobs and put into a mixing bowl. Mix in the other ingredients and season with salt, pepper, and vinegar to taste.
  • Allo the salad to chill in the fridge for at least an hour before serving so that all of the flavours can meld together.
