You will swoon for this preparation for fresh summer corn on the cob. It is reminiscent of what I think of as Mexican street food: grilled corn on the cob smeared with mayo and sprinkled with queso fresco. But veganized and with a Thai twist.

Preparation

  1. 4 cobs of corn, rubbed with olive oil, sprinkled with sea salt, and broiled for about 8 minutes on the first side and about 5 minutes on the second or until pleasantly charred (I close the oven door so that the process doesn't take even longer); cooled
  2. Approximately 2 tablespoons Chili-Lime Mayo (or more to taste)
  3. Approximately 1 to 2 tablespoons each coconut, plain or toasted, finely chopped cilantro, and finely chopped roasted and lightly salted peanuts
  4. Optional garnish: additional mayo, cilantro sprigs, and whole peanuts
  5. Smear the mayo on the corn--or zigzag it from a squirt bottle--and sprinkle with coconut, cilantro, and peanuts.  Serve barely warm or at room temperature (so that mayo doesn't melt).
  6. Garnish with more mayo, cilantro sprigs, and whole peanuts if desired
