Cajun-Style Grilled Corn Salad
Recipe type: Side Dish
Serves: 6-8
 
Ingredients
  • Vegetable oil (for the grill)
  • ½ cup Pecorino Romano grated cheese
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 4 teaspoons lime juice
  • 1 medium garlic clove, minced
  • ¾ teaspoon Cajun spice blend (or chili powder)
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • green onions, sliced thin
  • 6 large ears of corn, husks removed
Instructions
  1. Turn all the burners on high and allow the grill to become very hot.
  2. Once you scrape the grate clean, oil it by dipping a paper towel in vegetable oil. Use tongs to oil the grate!
  3. Place the ears of corn on the grill, turning them every 2 minutes or so until the kernels start to char.
  4. Combine the cheese, mayonnaise, lime juice, garlic, Cajun spice mix (or chili powder), black pepper, and salt.
  5. When the corn is done, allow to cool for a few minutes. Using the OXO corn stripper, remove the kernels from the cob and empty the container into a medium mixing bowl.
  6. Toss in the cheese, mayo, and spice mixture and mix until the corn kernels are coated. Top with green onions, to taste.
