“If it isn’t broken, don’t try to fix it” is a favorite quote I love to use, and making corn falls into this category for me. Juicy sweet corn doesn’t need much to make it taste amazing. Just boil it in some water, add your favorite seasoning and you have the perfect side to go with any meal. 
 
Juicy yellow corn covered in a cilantro infused chimmichuri sauce and drenched in butter
Some things in life just go together, and corn on the cob and butter are two of them. For this recipe, I used LAND O LAKES® Butter with Canola Oil Spread and here’s why- LAND O LAKES® Butter with Canola Oil has 3 ingredients. That’s not a typo — it really is only 3. Sweet cream, canola oil and salt. In an age where people are trying to source products containing fewer ingredients and, more importantly, ingredients that they can actually pronounce, this butter with canola oil is perfect! If you take a look at some competitors butter spreads, they can contain up to 15 ingredients, not exactly what I want to spread on my corn. Use LAND O LAKES® Butter with Canola Oil spread right from the fridge and you won’t end up with ripped slices of bread or chunks of it falling off warm ears of corn. It’ll just melt all over and get into every kernel, eventually dripping down your chin. What could be more delicious!
 
The perfect summer side, drenched in butter and chimmichuri sauce

 Chimichurri sauce is perfect on any grilled meat but it also works great on this corn. Packed with cilantro and garlic the flavor is amazing! I grated some fresh Parmesan cheese over the hot corn and finished the recipe by adding a dollop of LAND O LAKES® Butter with Canola Oil which melted all over the corn. This is a great side dish for summertime and the LAND O LAKES® Butter with Canola Oil makes the corn so moist and juicy!
