I like to peel the husks back and rub ears of sweet corn with delicious dill butter before putting them on the grill. The butter melts over the golden kernels as the corn steams inside the husk.
I started using this recipe in 1987, when I began cooking light. It's been a favorite side dish ever since. With its lemon and Parmesan flavors, it once took second place in a cooking contest. —Alice Nulle of Woodstock, Illinois
In Bryan, Texas, Erin Littlefield saves herself the trouble of husking those ears of sweet corn she brings to family picnics and get-togethers with this scrumptious grilling technique. “My husband came up with the sweet and spicy glaze,“ she confides. “It tastes really good, looks beautiful with the flecks of red pepper and requires much less butter than folks generally use.“
“We love grilled veggies and this recipe is a family favorite,” notes Sue Gronholz of Beaver Dam, Wisconsin. The sweet corn husks are soaked first for precise steaming and served with a tasty marjoram butter.
Bright asparagus, yellow summer squash and other vegetables get flame-broiled treatment in this must-try side dish. The grilled specialty gets a flavor boost from red wine vinegar, basil and a sprinkling of Parmesan cheese.
What a great way to use up all that summer squash! You can almost taste the sunshine in this quick, colorful vegetable dish and the foil packets make for carefree cleanup. —Betty Washburn, Reno, Nevada
“I love these new, little garden potatoes,” writes Christine Wall of Bartlett, Illinois. “This dish can easily be put in a foil pan and cooked on the grill. Your kitchen won't get hot, and clean up is a breeze.”
The convenience of frozen vegetables takes the worry out of cooking dinner. Best of all, you still get that fresh flavor of summer. Simply take a bagged veggie blend, add some quick pantry staples, and cook for a satisfying complement to just about any main dish.
“I love to eat what I grow, and I have tried many combinations of the fresh vegetables from my garden. This one is really great! I never have leftovers when I make this tasty side."
