How To Make cassies grilled sweet corn salad

  • 1
    Preheat your grill. Husk corn and I pour a little olive oil in my hand and rub each cob until lightly coated...salt and place on grill. I grill just until some char marks and most of the starchiness is gone...about 5 - 6 minutes, turning frequently. Let cool, then I use my mandolin to remove from cob...can use a sharp knife.

    In a small dish, mix the vinegar, salt, pepper, oil and basil. Pour over corn mixture and toss well to coat. Taste to see if needs more seasonings. Chill for a few hours, then before serving - toss in some bacon and feta cheese if desired. Enjoy!
