NY style grilled corn

Corn on the Cob has arrived in grocery stores just in time for grilling season! Okay, I know it's not truly "in season" in the northwest, but I just get too excited to wait. My sweetie and I gave up cooking COTB any other way after discovering this recipe in Eating Well magazine. It's super easy to make and brings a full, slightly tangy flavor to this grilling staple. This recipe is a light version of the delightful street corn sold by vendors in Mexico and NYC.
