We love grilled corn on the cob, and it gives it the perfect smoky flavor for this salad.
Cutting corn off the cob can be a pain. Its hard to keep the cob standing upright and not to mention the kernels going all over the place after cutting them. I always use a bundt pan which holds the cob perfectly and then catches all the kernels that come off.
This creamy dressing is made with mayo, chipotle pepper and a little lime juice…SO GOOD!
