Grilled Corn with Truffle Cheese Salt

We signed up for a wine and food pairing experience at Williamson Wines in Healdsburg this summer. One of the memorable dishes I tried there was a simple corn salad with truffle cheese salt. The taste of truffle really shines through in this refreshing salad. This is a very simple dish, and if you have the grill on standby, fire it up and enjoy a very flavorful salad.


  • 4 ears fresh sweet corn
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise  
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp lime juice
  • 1/2 Tbsp minced chives + more for garnish
  • 2 tsp truffle cheese salt
  • 1 Tbsp crumbled cotija cheese + more for garnish


  1. Remove husk and silk from the corn.
  2. Grill the corn over medium flame for about 20 minutes until lightly charred on all sides. Remove and let cool.
  3. Cut all of the corn kernals off the cob. Set aside.
  4. Mix mayonnaise, lime juice, truffle cheese salt, cotija, and minced chives.
  5. Toss the corn kernals in the mayonnaise mixture until evenly coated.
  6. Garnish with additional cotija cheese and minced chives.
