A good reason to grill corn

We’ve been busy here, so busy. Tito’s cousin Laura is here (Laura is her real name), and between exploring new farmers’ markets and cooking up a storm, she’s getting a pretty solid introduction to the way we live our lives here.

This was part of our lunch today, a prelude to what just may be The Best Cheesecake. Coming soon.

Recipe for Leftover Grilled Corn Salad
Recipe 167 of 365

There are some things I love eating the next day, cold, straight out of the fridge: macaroni and cheese, grilled steak, roasted chicken, and potato salad come to mind. But leftover cold grilled corn has never been high on that list. It tends to linger, ignored, in the back of the fridge, until my husband takes pity on it and throws it away.

Here, a reason to grill extra corn. The feta gives it a great creamy texture. Sliced red grape tomatoes would make a tasty addition.

TIME: 10 minutes (with grilled corn)
MAKES: 2 to 4 servings as a side dish

2 cups corn, from about 3 leftover grilled corn cobs
2 tablespoons crumbled feta cheese
1/4 cup toasted pine nuts
1/4 cup loosely packed, roughly chopped fresh parsley
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste

Mix all ingredients in a bowl until well blended, and serve.
