Ingredients
  1. 12 ears of corn, husked
  2. 6 Tb. olive oil, divided
  3. 1 cup thinly sliced red onion
  4. 2 large tomatoes, chopped
  5. 1 cup (loosely packed) fresh basil leaves, large leaves torn
  6. 1/3 cup (or more) fresh lime juice
  7. 2 Tb. chopped fresh thyme
  8. Kosher salt & freshly ground pepper
Instructions
  1. Build a medium-hot fire in a charcoal grill, or heat a gas grill to high.
  2. Rub corn with 1 Tb. oil.
  3. Grill corn, turning frequently, until corn is charred a little and heated through, 10-12 minutes.
  4. Remove from grill; when cool enough to handle, cut kernels from cobs and transfer to a large bowl. (Corn can be made 3 hours ahead.)
  5. Let stand at room temperature.
  6. Place onion in a strainer and rinse with cold water to mellow its flavor. Drain well.
  7. Mix onion, remaining 5 Tb. oil, tomatoes, basil, 1/3 cup lime juice, and thyme into corn.
  8. Season to taste with salt, pepper, and more lime juice, if desired.
  9. Salad can be assembled 1 hour ahead. Let stand at room temperature.*
Notes
  1. We think it brings out the flavors.
  2. No room on the grill? Cut the kernels from the cobs and char with 1 Tb. olive oil in a cast-iron skillet on the stove.
