Author Notes: We CAN’T get enough of summer’s tomato haul.
And we honestly thought there was nothing better than hulking heirlooms dotted with salted and pepper, and maybe a light drizzle of balsamic. But then we discovered whipped Crazy Feta, and we went so far as to introduce charred corn. We’re just wild like that. You’re welcome.

Serves: 4-6

Ingredients

  • 3 ears of corn, husk and silks removed
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 3-4 heirloom tomatoes, sliced into 1/2-inch slices
  • 1 container Cava Crazy Feta, softened at room temperature
  • 1/2 lime, juiced
  • 1/4 cup reduced fat cream cheese
  • 1 bunch fresh basil, rinsed and patted dry

Directions

  1. For the whipped feta, pulse Crazy Feta, cream cheese, and lime juice in a food processor until light and creamy.
  2. Brush corn with butter and grill directly on grate to achieve char marks. Turn occasionally, cooking for 4 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly. Shave kernels off of each ear of corn.
  3. To serve, spread whipped Crazy Feta on bottom of a large platter. Arrange sliced tomato on platter, sprinkle with charred corn, and sprinkle with small leaves of basil.
