Spicy and smoky with a hint of sweet citrus, our jerk flavored yogurt dipping sauce makes and excellent accompaniment to the tasty charred flavor of grilled corn. The entire dish comes together in just over 20 minutes and the yogurt sauce can be made ahead. When purchasing corn on the cob, it's best to look for selections that have tight husks that are green and golden brown. Avoid choosing corn with dry, black tassels on the ends. You can grill the corn in under 10 minutes. Serve with grilled chicken or pork.
