By: Herald Staff Report,
Here’s a twist on one of summer’s favorite veggies.
Grilled Mexican Corn
4 ears sweet corn, husks intact
8 tablespoons mayonnaise
½ pound cojita or feta cheese, crumbled fine
1 cup chopped cilantro, or to taste
Ground chili powder
2 limes, cut into wedges
Pull husk back from corn just enough to remove silk. Brush corn with mayonnaise. Pull husks back around ears. Place corn on hot grill. Cook, turning to brown all sides. Remove from grill and, using tongs, pull back husks to form handles. Brush corn again with mayonnaise. Divide cheese among 8 plates. Mix with cilantro. Sprinkle cheese mixture over corn. Season to taste with chili powder, sea salt and lime juice.
Yield: Serves 8.
