Warm Grilled Corn & Greek Yogurt Salad

I don’t get to corn very often. I never quite think to look for corn or to get them when I do see them in the stores. I really do like them in soups, in salads or on their own. But it’s one of those weird things where if you don’t really think of them, they pretty much don’t exist.

This salad could have been made using fresh corn but who doesn’t like a bit of charring? Also the heat brings out the sweetness in the kernels.

Ever since I realized I could eat corn without having to gnaw on the cob and getting everything stuck in my teeth, I never turned back.

If you had seen my Fajita Spiced Roast Chicken Drumsticks, I’m going for a similar complementary flavour here.

I topped my grilled corn with some Greek yogurt and a tiny sprinkling of fajita seasoning which already has some salt in it.

I think this simple salad side dish thing will go perfectly with anything spicy as well!

I found out recently that anything with dairy can give relief from spicy food and this side dish is perfect! Cool Greek yogurt & sweet corn.

I’ll try not to forget about how much I loved corn the next time I see them being sold.

This is my version of creamed corn without being actual creamed corn. Much fresher and quicker!
