There are plenty of vegetables that work well on the grill, beyond your typical summer squash and zucchini, or grilled romaine. Max Greb mentioned recently grilling a lot of corn at home, and he recommended it as an underrated item that more people need to try grilling. He said, “Any time I’m grilling ribs or doing a bigger grill session, [I] throw some corn on there, fully in the husk. You’ll get a little bit of the smoke flavor. They’ll steam themselves. That is a really underrated side dish. Once they’re done cooking, I like to throw on some butter, season them up with a little bit of coarse black pepper and flake salt. I love that one, and it’s a great side dish.”
Already grilled or smoked your fair share of corn on the cob this summer? Go even further outside the box and do as Chef Carla Hall does. Hall told Tasting Table that she enjoys a nice side of grilled celery.
