  • 1/4 cup coconut milk you can use light
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise you can use reduced fat
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • Zest and juice of 1 lime
  • 1 1/2 tbsp reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tsp sriracha or more to taste
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • 10 ears of corn husked
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cups assorted microgreens (I used basil, daikon and purple cabbage)
  • 2 cups bean sprouts
  • 1/4 cup spicy peanuts I found lime and habanero spiced peanuts
  • 1 red chili finely minced



  • Mix together the dressing ingredients until smooth. Set aside.


  • Preheat a grill pan or BBQ over medium high heat. Rub the corn with oil and grill until charred and cooked through on all sides, about 5-7 minutes. Set aside to cool.
  • Once cool enough, remove the corn kernels from the husk by running a sharp knife down the corn core.


  • Create a bed of microgreens and sprouts. Top with the corn and drizzle with the dressing.
  • Top with some additional microgreens, sprouts, the peanuts, and chili. Serve at room temperature.
