How to Cook Corn on the Cob:

There are several methods to 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: we 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. Click for grilled corn recipe. 
  • 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 is ok, 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.

    Perfect salad! Fulfilling and delicious! Didn’t have cherry tomatoes so used tomatoes on the vine, and used frozen corn. Thank you again for another good recipe! Reply

    Can I substitute other leafy salads then cilantro Reply

      March 28, 2020

      Hi Sylvia, you could try adding fresh parsley to taste. I think fresh dill would taste great also in place of cilantro. Reply

    I made this for a luncheon today. I put in too much lime, so I added honey to balance. It is as delicious! I will make this again! Reply

      Hi Darlene, this recipe serves 6 as a side. 1/6th of the recipe would be the serving size. I hope that helps. Reply

    Just made this delicious salad as a side tonight for dinner. Scrumptious! Added some champagne vinegar cuz my lime was kinda dry. Also used frozen corn kernels and added cucumbers and cilantro. I’ve been home on the range for 45 years and sometimes it gets boring doing the same old food even tho I love cooking, baking…food in general. Natasha’s Kitchen has brought new inspiration to me with yummy recipes and fun videos to watch. Thank you! Reply

    Made this 3 times and all love. I use red capsicum instead of tomatoes. Asking you if you think mint would work instead of the cilento? Reply

      December 2, 2019

      Hi Sharna, I think mint might not meld well with the other flavors. I would suggest fresh dill or finely chopped parsley instead. Reply
