Step 2

Place corn on a grill rack coated with cooking spray. Grill corn 12 minutes or until tender, turning frequently. Remove corn from grill; brush with mayonnaise mixture, and sprinkle with cheese mixture. Serve immediately.

This is now a staple for casual summer dinners. To be lazy we just mix all of the ingredients together and spread on the corn. We also discovered that using this same technique yields a delicious dipping sauce for sweet potato fries.

This was a great recipe!!! Wonderful flavors and really easy to make. I made some changes, it's probably not "authentic" anymore but it worked! I use plain Greek yogurt instead of mayo - no reason other than we simply don't eat mayo :-) The second time I made this, I had to bring a side dish to a potluck. I grilled the corn, then cut the kernels off & added to a bowl. Mixed in the rest of the ingredients. So people scooped it out w/ a spoon onto their plates instead of eating corn on the cob. I have to say it worked pretty good!! I make it both ways now, and regularly. A really really good side dish!!!

I give this five stars both for its flavor and ease of preparation. I don't have a grill, so I boiled the ears of corn, stripped the cob, and mixed the kernels with the seasoning and served it with tortilla chips. Heaven.

Parboiled the corn, then finished on the grill. Really great combo of flavors. Served with CL's chipotle burgers. Worthy of a holiday bbq.
