When corn is at its peak, think beyond the cob; put the cob in a bowl and run a knife down the side, rotating with each slice, to remove the kernels.

Tossed raw in a salad, grilled or broiled and then removed from the cob — either makes for a fresh addition to summer dishes.

All of these recipes use fresh corn though, truth be told, in a pinch frozen corn is a respectable substitute.

An average ear of corn has an average of 16 rows and 800 kernels — fun fact!
