Picnic Corn

This recipe may be the best part of summer!  We have eaten it over and over again.  The first time we tried it, my cousin and her family were here.  They went home and made it for her in-laws the very next day.
{Picnic Corn}
originally from here
8 ears corn, shucked
1/4 cup melted butter or olive oil
1 tablespoon cilantro
1 clove garlic, minced
2 teaspoons chile powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
3/4 cup grated Romano cheese
Lime wedges, for garnish

Preheat an outdoor grill to medium-high heat (or and indoor grill pan).  Brush the corn with melted butter or olive oil. Grill the corn until hot and lightly charred all over, 7 to 10 minutes, depending on the temperature of the grill.

While the corn is charred, mix the cilantro, garlic, chile powder, salt, mayonnaise, and lime juice.

Spread the mayonnaise mixture evenly over the corn, and sprinkle with Romano cheese. Place corn under the broiler for just a few minutes.

Serve warm with lime wedges.
