One of the things I love about the spring/summer seasons is grilling.
My husband, the grill master, does vegetables up right on the grill.
Last night we did some yellow squash, zucchini, mushrooms, onions and tomatoes on the grill, and they were AWESOME!
Consistently, I LOVE fresh corn on the grill. Asparagus is also a grilled favorite of mine.
There are several vegetables we eat fresh only. The thought of eating them frozen or canned makes me gag. Canned green beans are NOTHING like fresh green beans.
(When I snap them ahead of time, I feel like I should be sitting on the porch with the women folk churning butter. I love that feeling. I want to live in Little House on the Prairie...without all the work that would require.)
Fresh corn on the cob is undoubtedly far superior to anything frozen or canned.
We like to grill it and make the CORN PAINT to go on it. (I made up the name. It just seemed appropriate because we paint it on with a brush.)
If you've had this at our house, raise your hand...lots of you!
Here's the recipe.
(Warning: not low fat)
Put equal parts mayo and sour cream in a bowl. I use about 2T.
Sprinkle in grated Parmesan cheese until it's a spreadable consistency. It takes quite a bit. You don't want it runny.
Then sprinkle in some chili powder and add some color.
Spread this mixture on your corn cob with a grill brush or whatever brush you use, and then squeeze some lime juice on top of it.
SO GOOD! Do you believe me? It sounds weird, but it's SO GOOD!
Last step: Invite us over for dinner when you make it.
