Hello friends! With Labor Day just days away I want to share some tasty goodness with you. I am taking you from Fashion to Fork with my favorite Grilled Sweet Corn recipe.
Whether you are hosting at home or going to a friends, grilled sweet corn is always a crowd favorite. I mean, have you ever heard of someone NOT liking corn? I'll answer for you: no. Because how could you not like corn! Not only is this recipe SO tasty, it's also extremely easy to prepare.
Now let's get cookin', friends. Here's what you'll need:
6 ears of corn
Start by husking your corn. This is a personal preference, but I like to leave half of the husk on the corn so I can have one side charred. The husk can also act as a convenient little handle while eating!
Throw your corn on the grill for about 5 to 8 minutes on high until it is slightly charred/browned
Remove them from heat and place on a large white platter, like this one from Crate & Barrel (I linked a few more below!)
Sprinkle on some salt, pepper and chili powder to taste. and garnish with a handful of chopped cilantro, and voila!
If you're really trying to spice things up, you can add a creamy Mexican spread to make Mexican Street Corn! Here's what you'll need:
4 tbsp. mayo
4 tbsp. sour cream
1/2 cup parmesan cheese (you can also use Cotija cheese!)
Just mix the mayo and sour cream together in a bowl. (I love these little mixing bowls from Crate & Barrel! I use them all the time when I make dressings and salads.)
Next you'll rub the mayo and sour cream mixture on with a pastry brush (like this one).
Coat your corn with cheese and sprinkle with salt, pepper, and chili powder!
Finally, squeeze a slice of lime over your corn for some extra flavor.
Although I love Labor Day, it also marks the end of summer and I am just not ready for that! You’ll find me wearing only jean shorts and off the shoulder tops until it is socially unacceptable...LOL! I linked some of my favorite denim + gingham combos below.
Soak up the last days of summer, my dears, and have a safe holiday weekend!
