If you haven't tried Mexican-style grilled corn, this is the summer to do it. While the grains of corn might not come out as plump and juicy as when the corn is boiled, making your corn on the cob on the BBQ caramelizes the natural sugars of the corns beautifully and makes the result oh-so-smoky, sweet, and delicious. Once you try this recipe once, it'll become your go-to summer side dish. It's easy to prepare, inexpensive, and tasty. Picking your corn well is the real first step to this dish - choose corn with a vivid green husk that is still firmly attached to the ear. The ends of the corn silk should be brown, and the stem. pale yellow. When it comes to topping, butter and salt may be the classic, and coconut oil is great if you want to try something new, but this creamy walnut-basil sauce is really something special. This recipe makes a great side for grilled tofu or vegetable skewers.
