Corn On the Cob with Mint-Feta Butter

Vicki Butts (lazyme)


This recipe takes the Mexican tradition of sprinkling corn on the cob with cotija cheese and dried chile and turns it on its head. By substituting crumbled feta and mint, it gives the summer standby a Mediterranean slant. Cutting the ears into smaller sections makes them easier to coat with the buttery cheese and herb mixture-and way more fun to eat.
