When I was a kid, there was nothing I enjoyed more than dreamy summer dinners on the back porch with my family — my mom would prep, dad would grill, and I set the table. There were burgers, popsicles, and always one crucial side dish: corn. Summer vegetables come in spades, but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t love corn the most. Something about it reminds me of long days spent running around with neighborhood kids… whether it was corn on the cob or corn salsa, it was always sweet and delicious, and an essential ingredient to every summer party. So we’ve rounded up our top ten most drool-worthy corn recipes… click through and let us know how you like to cook summer’s most beloved side dish!
