Who is ready for summer!?!?! I think by now most of us are. I’m not looking forward to the triple digit temps. But, summer food . . . Yes, I’m ready! And is there a more perfect summertime food than grilled fresh corn? Nope, no there is not. Try this Jalapeño Popper Grilled Corn Salad Recipe for a new fun twist on your summertime favorite!

I favor charcoal barbecues because I love that smoky flavor. With Kingsford Charcoal Briquets I can get my bbq started in no time, ready to cook in 15 minutes. They feature Sure Fire Grooves® to help coals light faster than ever! Kingsford Charcoal delivers the ease and flavor grillers are looking for.

And yes, my bbq has seen better days. It still works great so I keep putting off getting a new one. It does it’s job just like Kingsford does.

I would never claim to be a grill master. So I need charcoal briquets that get started quickly and easily. That is why I use Kingsford Charcoal. Kingsford Match Light® briquets are amazing! They have just enough lighter fluid so that your bbq can be lit with a single match. I usually buy Kingsford Match Light® but this 15lb bag of Kingsford Original was on sale for $5 bucks at Walmart. What a steal! And I was able to get the rest of my Bbq supplies at a great price. Walmart has everything I needed to throw the perfect summer bbq from ingredients, to Glad Press’n Seal and Kingsford Charcoal.

Once your bbq is lit and ready it is time to get your corn on the grill. Simply remove the silk strands from the corn, slather with olive oil, wrap in foil and grill.

Open the foil for the last couple minutes of grill time to get that smoky flavor. If you enjoy a nice char on your corn you can transfer to the grill instead.

This is a great bbq side dish because it can be made ahead of time or right before the meat goes on the grill. Just prep all the ingredients and once the grilled corn cools, remove the kernels and add to the bowl.

That is my tip for the perfect summer barbecue . . . keep it simple. Choose one or two easy side dishes, serve fresh fruit and a couple meat options.

At my house we like to serve this corn salad, biscuits, fresh watermelon, hot dogs and steak. And don’t forget the popsicles for dessert!

With a low key bbq everyone can sit down and enjoy the summer fun!

Another bbq necessity is Glad Press‘n Seal. Use it to keep food fresh and protected from insects. Then pack up the bbq leftovers with the unique gripping texture that tightly seals to almost any surface.

In my house it is a necessity year round!

    Do you think I could use can corn? Is it served cold or at room temp?

    • Nicole Harris says:

      I suppose can corn will work if that is your preference. And it can be room temp or cold. Enjoy!

      • Debz says:

        I used Del Monte Fire Roasted Corn in a can. I cut the recipe in half. I used one can of corn, because there are only two of us, so we didn’t need a whole recipe. It turned out great and I will be taking it to the next BBQ.

        • Nicole Harris says:

          Awesome! Thanks for leaving your recipe tweaks and suggestions. Your version sounds wonderful!

    • Sandra says:

      I think that frozen corn would be a better alternative and, if you were to heat it in a cast iron skillet with the olive oil, it would get some color.

      • Nicole Harris says:

        Yes, frozen corn is my go-to veggie! It will definitely work in this recipe especially if cooked in the skillet. Thanks for the great suggestion!

  2. Ginpin says:

    Since my husband doesn’t like sour cream what would be a good substitute?

    • Nicole Harris says:

      Well if he doesn’t like sour cream I’m assuming Greek yogurt would not be his favorite either. That is what I use as a sour cream substitute. Or you can try just using the cream cheese then adding tiny splash of milk to loosen things up. Enjoy!

      • KarenT says:

        Mayonnaise will work as a substitute for Sour Cream or Greek Yogurt. Or do a little half of this and half of that

        • Nicole Harris says:

          Thank you, Karen. That would definitely work as a substitute. I need helpers 😀

  3. I made this today and roasted the jalapenos on the grill with the corn. I only cooked them about 5 minutes, just enough to slightly soften and turn the skin a little paler green. Great recipe. Thanks!

  4. Vanessa says:

    This was incredible. I’m currently guarding the bowl. Thank you!!!

  5. Megan says:

    Hi Nicole. Have you ever made this the night before you plan to serve it? I’m wondering how the flavors would be after letting it sit in the fridge overnight.

    • Nicole Harris says:

      I have eaten the leftovers the next day and it was perfectly fine. Enjoy!

  6. Sounds Amazing!!!

  7. Linda says:

    This was great! Since it’s winter I used frozen corn, microwaved it halfway, then put it under the broiler to get a little extra flavor and a little browning. I creamed the cream cheese and sour cream with my mixer so would blend easier. Next day was tasty also.
    I’m going to try adding some red bell pepper and a little scallion next time. This is a keeper! Can’t wait for summer to make it with fresh corn on the cob.
