We love grilled corn at our house. This is a great accompaniment to grilled ribs, burgers, and chicken. I can smell summer already!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

There's nothing better than fresh corn in the summertime. This grilled corn is a delicious summer side dish. A fresh herb compound butter is made with fresh basil, thyme, and dill. As the corn grills, the butter seeps into the kernels. We used the herbed butter on our steaks too, and highly recommend doing that.
