One of my favourite things to have in the summer, other than tomatoes of course, is corn. Even better? Corn grilled on the grill with a char on the outside, slathered in herbs and butter. It’s the perfect side for burgers, meat, or even a healthy salad. This side is so easy to make, and the extra herb butter can be saved for a savoury sandwich, or tomatoes/avocado on toast!
