It is almost that time of year when every meal should include fresh corn on the cob as a side dish.  My family generally just unwraps a stick of butter, puts in on a plate and passes it around the table for everyone to roll their ear of hot corn in.  I love to sprinkle a bit of dill over my melty buttered corn.

Another one of the best ways I have found to eat corn is to cut it off the cobs, put it onto a cookie sheet, toss it with a drizzle of olive oil, a little butter, salt and pepper and roast it in the oven.  The corn gets almost caramelized and could be served as dessert it is so sweet.  If you think that corn is a pain to shuck, clean and cook, I encourage you to watch this video.  This is how I cook my corn every single time and it is quick, clean and comes out perfectly without fail.

Here are some other ways that I would love to enjoy corn this summer:

White Chicken Chili from Cooking Classy:  I like to enjoy soups and chilis year round and this one looks so flavorful.

Jalapeño Creamed Corn from Spicy Southern Kitchen:  Simple, yet I’m sure so rich and delicious.

Esquites-Mexican Street Corn Salad from See Brooke Cook:  Every time I see a recipe for Mexican street food corn dusted with spices and sprinkled with cotija cheese, it makes me drool and this salad looks like all of the best ingredients from that popular street food.

Pasta with Cilantro Jalapeño Pesto, Fresh Corn and Tomatoes from Oh My Veggies:  I die for anything with cilantro pesto and this pasta looks so fresh and drool-worthy.

Corn Fritters with Coconut Whipped Cream and Sweet Honey Bourbon Syrup from Half Baked Harvest:  I don’t feel that any explanation is necessary for this one making it on my list.
