Grilled Corn Salad with Feta

Sweet summer corn doesn’t require much fuss to make it taste good, but the combination of sweet corn and slightly salty Feta cheese is simply magical, whether you enjoy this warm or cold! Toss in some fresh herbs and you have a winning salad combination. If you want a Mexican inspired version try this Mexican Street Corn Salad or try this Corn Tomato and Avocado Salad.

How To Grill Charred Corn

This is the easiest method for grilling corn with charred edges. Peel the corn and remove the silks. Lightly spray corn with a little oil then grill over direct heat, turning the corn often until it is charred all over, about 12 to 15 minutes. To shell the corn, let it cool a few minutes then transfer to a cutting board and hold the corn upright. Using a sharp knife, cut the corn off the cobb.

Variations and Tips

  • Corn can be grilled a day ahead before assembling the salad.
  • Can be eaten warm or cold.
  • Add fresh diced tomatoes.
  • Swap the red onion for chives.
  • For a Mexican twist, add fresh cilantro, avocado and lime juice.

  1. Wanted to make an easy corn salad for Labor Day and glad I found this one. Husband said “sometimes simple is the best” and that’s what this one delivers. Added lime juice and zest, and jalapeño bc we like spicy. 

  2. I’ve made this many times and it’s surprisingly tasty for being so simple. It’s also very versatile! This time, I added a chopped jalapeno from my garden, subbed scallions for red onion (my red onion was looking a little slimy), and added a squeeze of lime. Served with the Latin Roasted Chicken from the Air Fryer DInners book that we did on the rotisserie. Great long weekend cookout!

  3. I tried this recipe myself after tasting it at a party.  I used the red onion, and feta cheese that I had on hand and found it tasting different from my friends did, so added a few tablespoons of balsamic vinegar to it and it really increased the flavors all working together! It was a hit! Thanks so much for sharing this! 

  4. How much mint is recommended for this recipe? It doesn’t say in the ingredients

  5. Made this for dinner tonight with simple grilled chicken and it did not disappoint! The warmth from the grilled corn melted the feta a bit — it was creamy and so good!  I didn’t add cilantro or mint but did add a finely chopped jalapeño from our garden. Definitely adding to our regular summer rotation!

  6. I love all your recipes.

  7. Made this today with corn from our local produce stand in suburban Atlanta. It was delicious. I used fat-free Mediterranean herb feta, which is what I had on hand. Paired with your shrimp Panzanella skewers with peaches from the same produce stand. Yum and yum, again! We get great peaches here, but I miss the Maryland/Delaware corn from my childhood.

  8. Could you make this with fresh basil?

  9. This was AMAZING. 

  10. just delicious. Did not add feta since guests do not ear cheese BUT not a kernel left. Even a four yr old ate her portion. Great dish to make when summer corn in season. Now I grill about 25 minutes. Turn cobs three times during grilling.

  11. Made this tonight, adding grape tomatoes and yellow pepper. It was a hit! We used on top of Carne Asada salads.
