Grilled Corn Salad

Sometimes simplicity is best.  Just a few ingredients can come together in such a way that you wonder why you put in the effort other times.  I mean when a salad of perfectly caramelized corn, green onion, zippy goat cheese and a hint of lemon can make your husband happy, you shouldn't question it.  You should just take your bows then come to your blog to explain how easy it was. 

And here's how easy it was.
Grilled Corn Salad
2 ears of corn, washed and shucked
1 green onion, chopped
1 oz goat cheese
1 T lemon juice
Salt and pepper

Prepare the grill for hot cooking (about 400).  Oil, salt and pepper the corn.  Cook 5-6 minutes per side for a total of 15-20 minutes.  Remove and let cool slightly.

Chop the green onion and crumble the goat cheese. Cut the corn off the cob into a bowl while still warm.  Add the goat cheese and blend well, letting the corn soften the cheese slightly.  Mix in the green onion, lemon juice, salt and pepper.  Taste and adjust the seasoning as necessary.
