- 3 ears Sweet Corn
- 5 Easter Egg Radishes
- 2 Scallions, sliced
- 2 tablespoons Cilantro
- 1 Lime, juiced
- 1 teaspoon chili powder
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to season
How it’s Done:
To grill the Corn: Preheat a grill or grill pan over medium-high heat. Shuck the corn and remove the silks, if needed. Grill the corn for 15 minutes, rotating every 5-7 minutes, until golden brown on most of the ears. Remove from the grill and set aside to cool a few minutes. You can prepare the rest of your salad ingredients while the corn cools
To make the Easter Egg Radish Salad: Scrub the radishes and trim off the bottoms. Using a mandolin slicer, hold the small green stem end of one radish and carefully slice the radish. Repeat with remaining radishes.
Slice the scallions and chop the cilantro. In a large bowl, combine the radish slices, scallions, cilantro, and chili powder. Juice the lime into the bowl.
When the corn is cool enough to handle, carefully cut the kernels off of the cobs. Combine the corn kernels with the sliced radish mix. Toss well, and serve.

Chef Katie’s Tips
Too Much Spice? If you’re not a fan of spicy or smoky flavor, drop the chili powder. You can substitute with sweet paprika or just omit completely.
Not Corn Season? This recipe celebrates the sweet, delicious flavor of fresh summer corn, during the height of the season. However, you can make it year-round, using frozen corn kernels. For the roasted flavor, roast the kernels in a 425F oven for 8 minutes, until golden brown.
Radish Variations: This salad holds up really well, even after a few days. For more variety, experiment with different radishes. Watermelon radishes, French breakfast radishes, and purple heirloom radishes offer beautiful color. Black radishes add an extra spicy kick.
