Serves 4 | Prep Time 20 | Cook Time 10


3 ears of sweet corn, shucked
Extra virgin olive oil
2 large cloves of garlic
2 ripe Hass avocados, roughly chopped
1/4 cup fresh basil, finely chopped
6 green onions, white and light green parts only, finely chopped
Juice of one lime
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper

Husk and drop the corn in boiling water. Time it for 7 minutes when the water comes back to a boil

Toss corn ears with butter, salt and fresh ground pepper

Grill over Direct High heat until generously browned on all sides. (Only a few minutes with a hot grill.)

Allow corn to cool.

Cut the kernels off the cobs and place in a medium bowl.

Scrape the cobs with the back of a knife to release the milky juices.

In a food processor or blender, puree half the kernels, all of the milky juices, and the garlic and then transfer the mixture back to the bowl with remaining corn kernels.

Add the rest of the ingredients and stir to combine.

Got this from one of my favorite grilling cookbooks --Weber's Real Grilling. I was looking for a grilled corn salsa and this absolutely fits the bill. They had it as an accompaniment to grill New York Steaks.

A dash of local for every season
