How to Cook Corn on the Cob:

There are several methods of 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: Grilling corn in husks is easy. We pre-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. You can also grill corn in foil if you don’t have time to soak the corn.
  • 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. Click here for boiled corn recipe.

Can I substitute with Fresh corn with Frozen Corn?

Yes! When corn is out of season, it is ok to use frozen corn. Canned corn will also work when you aren’t able to find fresh or frozen, but frozen is the better substitute. Sometimes it is even easier to find organic corn when it is frozen. Follow the package instructions to prepare frozen corn.
