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.
"What's in the butter?" is what I get asked after people taste my herb-speckled blend on fresh sweet corn. I'm more than happy to share the secret. Once you have tried this recipe, you won't want to eat corn plain again!

My husband and I agreed that the original recipe for this corn needed a little jazzing up, so I added the thyme and cayenne pepper to suit our tastes. Now fresh summer corn makes a regular appearance on our grill.

Seasoned with cilantro, this easy-to-prepare corn on the cob is sure to be a standout at your Labor Day picnic. Wrapping the corn in foil helps lock in the flavors.

I like to serve fish tacos with quinoa and black beans for a complete and satisfying meal. If you’ve got them, add colorful summer toppings like bright peppers, green onions or purple carrots. —Camille Parker, Chicago, Illinois
Who knew a store-bought dressing could add so much flavor? This medley tastes delightful with garden-fresh veggies. Feel free to sub in your favorites and let the grill and the dressing do the rest! —Taste of Home Test Kitchen
