Mexican Street Corn

A friend gave me this recipe a couple of summers ago. This corn is delicious! And a discussion last night at small group about grilled corn made me think of it.

6 large ears fresh corn, husks and silks removed (leave stalk for handle)
1 T olive oil
1/2 c mayo
2 T fresh minced cilantro
1 T fresh lime juice
1 garlic clove, pressed
1/2-1 tsp garlic powder
1 oz feta cheese (1/4 cup) – I’ve read you can use cotija, too, but I think feta is better!

Adjust oven rack 5″ from broiler and heat broiler. Brush corn with oil and transfer to foil-lined cookie sheet. Broil corn until well browned on 1 side, about 10 minutes. Turn corn over and repeat.

**It would be perfectly fine to grill the corn without oil if you want…the result will be the same.**

While corn cooks, mix remaining ingredients.

Remove corn and roll in mixture. Return to broiler until cheese is warm and slightly toasted, about 1 minute (of course, you don’t want to do this step on the grill). Season with salt and pepper and serve with any remaining mayo mixture.
