Since the weather is warmer and the days are longer, why not celebrate Dad’s special day outdoors with a BBQ? This simple yet scrumptious corn on the cob recipe is everything you’d want to eat on a hot summer afternoon. Grilled Corn with Herb Butter is juicy, tender and the perfect side to serve with those BBQ ribs. It’s straight from the heart and fresh off the grill. Not to mention, it’s one of my dads favorites!

In my opinion, the best way to cook corn is to grill it. Its crunchy, and has the perfect flavor that just tastes like summer. This well-seasoned butter will douse each ear of corn with flavor as it melts, making the corn that much better. It’s grilling season! So next time you’re at the store or farmers market remember to grab some corn, fresh herbs and don’t forget the butter. This will be a staple, all summer long.
