I did end up making this, and it was amazing! So flavorful! I agree that using peak vegetables really takes it to the next level (and definitely grill the corn). It was really simple to make too. Everyone raved! I will certainly be adding this to my regular rotation. Martha Stewart is my hero :-)

I haven't tried this exact recipe, but hundreds like it. Personally, I would definitely grill the corn, for added flavor and add fresh, chopped herbs, like thyme or basil. The cheese will add a lot of flavor and peak of the season vegetables have special flavors of their own that you don't want to cover up with a thick salad dressing.

I think they left out the part about grilling the corn. Remove the silks but keep the husks on, then grill the corn for about ten minutes on medium-high. Has anyone tried this recipe yet? There's so little seasoning, it sounds like it might be bland. I was going to make it tonight but now having second thoughts.

Is the corn uncooked?

I would recommend the gorgonzola...a little milder than blue, but in the same family.
