Corn Delight dip

Turning Corn on the cob into Sumptuous Corn Dip

It's not every day you hear someone from Iowa, the corn state, say they haven't had corn on the cob in a long time. But when my mother-in-law, who recently celebrated her 80th birthday, mentioned just that, I knew I had to do something about it. After all, how can you disappoint someone who lives in the heartland of corn?
I set out to make her corn-on-the-cob dreams come true. However, in my enthusiasm, I may have gone a tad overboard, leaving us with more corn than we could handle. That's when I decided to transform the remaining end-of-season corn into something equally delightful - a Corn Dip that pairs perfectly with my favorite Sumac + Thyme Nordic Crisps.
Why Greek Yogurt Over Sour Cream?
Before we dive into the recipe, let me share a little secret: I always opt for Greek yogurt over sour cream. Not only is it a healthier choice, but it's also a staple in my kitchen, thanks to my yogurt-loving kids. So, with Greek yogurt in hand and a surplus of corn cobs, I set out to create a memorable corn dip.


  • 1 tablespoon butter 🧈
  • 1/2 tablespoon chopped Jalapeño 🌶️
  • 1/2 tablespoon grated garlic 🧄
  • 2 cups fresh cut corn (the season's precious finale! 🌽)
  • 1/4 cup Mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped cilantro 🌿
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice 🍋
  • 1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese 🧀
  • A pinch of chili powder for garnishing 🌶️


Step 1: Sauté the Corn

  1. In a skillet, melt the butter over medium heat and add the chopped Jalapeño and grated garlic. Sauté for a few seconds until the kitchen is filled with an irresistible aroma.

  2. Now, add the star of the show - the fresh corn. Let it sizzle away for a few minutes, absorbing all those delightful flavors. You'll know it's ready when it turns a beautiful golden hue and fills your kitchen with the essence of summer. Remove it from the heat and let it cool.

Step 2: Create the Creamy Base

  1. In a mixing bowl, it's time to work on the creamy base. Combine the mayonnaise, Greek yogurt, cilantro, and lemon juice. Stir them all together until you have a luscious, creamy medley that will serve as the perfect backdrop for our corn.

Step 3: Mix and Garnish

  1. Here comes the magic moment - gently fold the sautéed corn into the creamy mixture. Ensure every precious kernel gets coated with this dreamy goodness. This is where flavor transformations occur!

  2. To add that extra layer of flavor and a touch of heat, sprinkle the top with Parmesan cheese and a pinch of chili powder. It's all about creating a symphony of tastes and textures.

Step 4: Dive In!

  1. Now, it's time for the grand finale. Grab your favorite dipping companions, the Sumac + Thyme Nordic Crisps, and let the flavor fiesta begin! 🎉
