mexican street corn sauce

In our CSA bag, we have been receiving a lot of New Jersey sweet corn. It tastes so fresh and crisp. Too bad it will not be in season for too much longer.

My dad found a way to cook the corn in the microwave with the husks still on. Then once it is done, it is supposed to slide right out and there is no cleaning. There is a video here. We tried it twice and it did actually work. I did not cook it for as long as they say on the video though.

Too top it off, #1 found a recipe in the August issue of Runner's World magazine. I adapted my version.

1/4 cup mayonnaise
2 Tbsp olive oil
2 Tbsp lime juice
3/4 Tbsp chili powder
2 Tbsp chopped cilantro

Whisk all ingredients together.

Brush or spread onto cooked ears of corn.
