Local Cooking at Home: Mexican-style Grilled Corn

Mexican-style Grilled Corn with Salad by Carlin Greenstein

LES resident and locavore chef Carlin Greenstein is contributing a weekly seasonal recipe based on  fresh food you can find at local markets or in your CSA. This week, she shares her recipe for Mexican-style Grilled Corn.

One of my favorite signs of summer is when corn starts to show up in the farmer’s markets and my CSA.  Although in New York City we are accustomed to seeing corn at every street fair from April – October, the corn you get in July  – September is special.  It is some of the sweetest, most delicious corn you’ll ever taste.  My husband loves eating local corn raw. Who can blame him!?  It is so succulent.
