The cilantro-lime butter in this recipe jazzes up the corn on the cob. It’s a lip-smacking side for any meal. To lighten it up a little, we added Greek yogurt, but all you’ll notice is that yummy butter-’n-lime flavor. And don’t forget to add salt and pepper to your liking once it’s cooked, although I don’t think it needs any extra! If you prefer corn without grill marks, rub it down with the butter mixture first, then wrap in tin foil. Grill for 10 minutes on each side.
