Try this inviting BBQ Corn recipe for your next summer party! Set up a bar with fresh chopped vegetables and cheese for their choice of toppings, and let everyone make their own individual corn salad. With every mouthful of these Mediterranean fixings your guests will be soon shouting out OPA’s. Keep in mind to check your refrigerator and vegetable bin for more ideas; shredded carrots, sliced celery, radishes, fresh herbs, pickles… or your pantry for a can of garbanzo beans.


In Greece, BBQ Corn is a traditional fast food in many nearby seaside towns during the summer.

Tips for BBQ Corn:

  • Leave the husks on the corn, but remove the strands.
  • The corn can be made ahead of time, just make sure the kernels are blackened.
  • Prep all your toppings the night before.
  • Use your favorite bottled dressing if time runs out!
  • You can use white as well as yellow corn in this recipe.

Prepare my Greek Herbal Dressing and you have a quick and delightful dressing for your fresh corn bar.
