Ingredients

  • 1/4 Cup crumbled feta
  • 3 Tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • Zest from 1 lemon
  • 3 Tablespoons chopped mint
  • 2 1/2 Teaspoons chopped thyme
  • 1/2 Teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/2 Teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 6 ears sweet corn

Directions

In a small bowl, combine the feta, butter, zest, mint, thyme, salt, and pepper. Use a wooden spoon to stir and mash ingredients together until mixed and fairly smooth.

Boil or grill corn until tender; serve immediately with butter for spreading.
