Grilled Corn Salad with Cotija Cheese

  • 8 – 10 ears of corn, silks removed, husks on (soaked in water for 30 min)
  • 1/2 tbls butter
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 tbls chopped, fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 cup cotija cheese, crumbled
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/8 tsp ancho chili pepper (I’m a wimp with spice, add more if you want)


  1. After soaking the corn, grill on medium high for about 20 minutes.
  2. When the corn is cool enough to handle, remove the husks and cut the corn off the cob.
  3. Saute in a pan over medium high heat with the butter, lime juice, cilantro, salt, pepper, chili powder, and chili pepper.
  4. Add the cotija cheese just before you are ready to serve.
