In mere minutes, grilled corn becomes a colorful and super seasonal summer salad.

Grilled Corn Salad

There are two reasons to make this salad. One: (the most obvious): it’s delicious and gorgeous and the epitome of summer. Two: grilled corn is one of the best and easiest things you can make during corn season, and once you’ve had your fill of corn straight off the cob, you’ll absolutely want to put those kernels to use in other summery ways.

Grilled Corn for Salad

You’ll start by grilling some corn on the cob. In short, you will be preheating the grill to medium-high heat and grilling the corn, turning every 3 to 5 minutes, until all sides of the corn are cooked and light char marks form, about 10 to 12 minutes.

How to Cut Corn Off the Cob

Remove the corn from the grill and let cool to room temperature. Use a large sharp knife to slice the corn kernels from the cobs, standing the corn on its end and using a steady hand. Discard the cobs. It’s nice to leave some of the kernels attached to each other in little planks – it gives the salad some extra textural variety and eye appeal.
