Grilled Corn Salad

Grilled Corn Salad

Inspired by mexican corn, with a few revisions, this recipe is my own creation.  It is very simple, everything is done to taste, and it is amazing!

It is definitely a favorite at our BBQ’s and it is a highly shared recipe.  I recommend making this salad outside by the BBQ as it is very messy to make, but it is absolutely worth it!


Several ears of white corn ((approx. 1 or 2 per person and depending on the size of the corn).


Fresh Lime Juice


Shuck the white corn and grill on the BBQ until blackened but not burnt on all sides.  (We always use coals when we grill.  So, if you use a gas grill, please let us know how it turns out!)

Let the corn cool slightly.

Cut the corn from the cob and place in a large bowl.

Add mayo, lime juice, and cayenne to taste.

Serve right away or put it in the fridge for later.  It’s delicious served cold or room temperature!  It keeps well for a few days.


  1. I freaking love this salad. It is the easiest thing on the planet to make, and so delicious. People go nuts for it. Would definitely recommend this as bbq staple or a ‘holy crap we’ve got a potluck today’ lifesaver.
