Grilled corn is a bit of a summer staple at our house. My son in particular loves it and will even eat leftover grilled corn on the cob out of the fridge so we don’t often get to make this salad with leftover grilled corn but it is a great way to use up some if you have it.

It is a delicious side dish addition to any grilled dinner this season. I make my own mayo for this recipe but you could easily use store bought and add the lemon zest and chives to that.

Don’t be intimidated if you have never made homemade mayonnaise before; it is easier than you think.

Was sceptical about the combination of foods/flavour in this, but it came out nice. Although I used ready made mayo, but added the cayenne pepper like you instructed when making your own mayo.
