Grilled Corn, Scallion Ragout

Steamed, grilled, or boiled, on the cob or off – nothing screams summer quite like fresh, local, sweet corn. We do enjoy the lightly charred flavor of the corn in our Grilled Corn, Scallion Ragout. Layer that with smoky roasted red pepper, bright scallions, smooth cream, and the acidity of white wine, and you’ve got a deceptively easy dish.

Serve Grilled Corn, Scallion Ragout as a side, spoon it atop grilled meat, use as a relish for turkey burgers – the options for summer corn are endless.
