It’s also the perfect to dish send me off on my way tomorrow to Iowa. I’ve been invited to attend the Iowa CORNucopia Tour and I can’t tell you how excited I am about this trip. Corn is one of my all time favorite veggies. I’ll be updating Twitter the whole time while I’m there so be sure to follow me so you can get the scoop as it’s happening! Can’t wait to share with you all more details and show you how your food makes it from the farmers to your plate!
8 ears fresh corn, husks and silk removed
1/2 red bell pepper, diced
1/2 red onion, chopped (I used a sweet yellow onion)
2 tablespoons sliced green onion
2 chipotle peppers, minced (I left this out)
3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro leaves
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 lime, juiced
1 1/2 tablespoons kosher salt
1 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
Preheat the grill to medium.
Remove the corn from the grill to a cutting board and let cool. Cut the kernels from the cobs with a sharp knife and transfer to a serving bowl. Add all the remaining ingredients and toss to combine.
