Grilled Sweet Corn Salad

READY IN: 22mins
Recipe by Sharon123

The grilled corn imparts a wonderful smokey flavor to this salad and red pepper and scallions add great color and crunch! This goes well at any barbeque and may be prepared up to 2 days in advance. From the Down Home with the Neely's cookbook.

I made this using canned corn kernels, omitted the BBQ seasoning and added in a little garlic powder and cayenne pepper, it still turned out wonderful, I'm going to make it again next time I grill corn, thanks Sharon

  1. Heat the grill to medium high, or turn on the broiler. Brush the cobs evenly with 2 tbls. oil.
  2. When grill is hot, grill corn for 7 minutes, using tongs to turn the cobs as needed for even cooking, until nicely charred on all sides.
  3. Or you can broil the corn, turning as needed for even browning.
