THE BASICS OF PERFECTLY GRILLED CORN
Preheat a grill on high for 10 minutes, lid down, or prepare a hot charcoal fire. Lay the shucked corn over direct heat and cook, turning occasionally, for approximately 5-10 minutes, until the corn is lightly charred and the kernels are tender. If you’re making the following salads, cool slightly until you can handle the corn, then use a sharp knife to slice the grilled kernels off the cobs.
