No giant pot of boiling water required—take your corn outdoors and toss it on the grill. Corn cooked over the grill is perfect to eat as is, but if you’re feeling indulgent, top it with our Chile-Lime-Tequila Compound Butter or pesto recipe. Serve beside another fresh, easy vegetable side such as our zucchini recipe.
