  • 3 ears sweet corn on the cob
  • 1 red bell pepper diced
  • 5 radishes sliced thin
  • 1/3 cup cilantro chopped
  • 3 scallions sliced

for the dressing-

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice or white vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon grill seasoning I used Mrs. Dash
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • salt & pepper to taste


  • Place corn into a large pot of cold water. Cover and bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes. Drain corn.
  • To char corn, place directly over the flame of a gas grill or onto a hot BBQ. Turn as it chars. You just want to get a little color on the corn and not completely burn it. Remove from heat and cut kernels off the cob and into a large bowl. Stir in red pepper, radishes, cilantro, and scallions.
  • For the dressing, whisk all ingredients together and toss with corn mixture. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate until ready to eat.
