Slideshow: Grilled Corn Recipes
2 1/2 cups fresh corn kernels (from 3 to 4 large ears)
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 teaspoons honey
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
1/2 Hass avocado, peeled and cut into 1/4-inch dice
Three 6- to 8-ounce romaine hearts, torn into bite-size pieces
1/2 cup very thinly sliced red onion
1/2 cup shredded pecorino cheese, plus more for garnish
How to Make It
Preheat the broiler. Spread the corn kernels on a large rimmed baking sheet. Broil 6 inches from the heat for about 5 minutes, until lightly charred. Let the corn kernels cool completely.
In a medium bowl, whisk the olive oil with the lemon juice, honey and garlic. Add the avocado and, using a fork, lightly smash it against the side of the bowl and mix it in to form a chunky dressing. Season with salt and pepper.
In a large bowl, toss the cooled corn with the romaine pieces, sliced onion and the 1/2 cup of pecorino cheese. Add the dressing, season with salt and pepper and toss well. Garnish the salad with shredded cheese and serve right away.
