Grilled Corn with Feta Cheese
recipe by The Neelys
4 ears sweet corn, husked and silks removed
2 tablespoons olive oil
Seasoning salt, recipe from Grilled Sweet and Tangy Pork chops
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 lime, juiced, plus 1 lime, quartered, for garnish
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 cup crumbled feta
1. Preheat the grill to medium-high heat.
2. Rub the corn with olive oil and season with seasoning salt, to taste. Grill the corn until it's charred, on all sides, rotating for about 10 minutes.
3. Meanwhile, mix the mayonnaise, chili powder, cayenne, lime juice and salt and pepper, to taste, together in a small bowl. Remove the corn from the grill and brush the hot corn with the mayonnaise mixture. Arrange on a platter and sprinkle with the feta cheese. Serve with lime wedges on the side.
In my opinion: I absolutely loved the flavor of the chili-lime sauce. It may be too spicy for small kids. It was hard to get the feta cheese to stick to the corn so next time I will try brushing on the mayonnaise mixture, adding the feta, and wrapping the corn in foil before placing on the grill. We served these with the Sweet and Tangy Grilled Pork Chops.
