Are you guys enjoying grilling out as much as we are this summer? What with the pizzas, burgers, and of course vegetable sides, it’s all so good! This post is just a simple round-up of two our favorite easy grilling accompaniments.
Following up on our fresh corn kick, I thought I’d show you guys the easiest (and one of the tastiest) ways to enjoy corn. Fresh off the grill! We soak the corn, husks and all, for about an hour before grilling and try to get a nice char on them.
Burgers are our go-to grill item. But what makes a plain old burger a bit more delicious? Special sauce of course! From McDonald’s to any of the popular burger places that keep popping up these days, there’s almost always some sort of house sauce. Well here’s mine. It’s simple yet tasty and delicious as a veggie dip too.
grilled corn on the cob
Fresh corn on the cob
Butter & salt for serving, optional
Soak the whole corn on the cob (in the husk) in cold water for at least an hour prior to grilling. Place the corn on the grill and cook, rotating occasionally, for about 25-30 minutes until the corn is cooked through. A little char is a good thing, so don’t be afraid to let the husk get a bit burnt. Peel off the husk and enjoy with butter and salt.
makes about half a cup
1/4 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons ketchup
1 tablespoon pickle relish
Salt and pepper to taste
Combine all of the sauce ingredients in a small bowl and stir to thoroughly mix. Use as a topping for burgers or as a dip for crudite.
