Good Neighbors + Oven Grilled Mexican Street Corn Recipe

This post was sponsored by Fresh From Florida as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central, however all opinions expressed are my own.

When it comes to the neighborhood/neighbor lottery, I hit the jackpot. From our neighborhood book club to Bunco, to just hanging out I absolutely love most of my neighbors.

My regular crew is just a phone call/group text away, and we’ve been known to throw together impromptu potlucks with wings and pizza. Then there are actually times when I act as a proper hostess… bypassing my normal B.Y.O.B. and serving food and drinks.

With the porch open for the season, I’m good for calling the homies over for some quick summer finger foods, to include Mexican street corn and watermelon.

I really prefer my corn off the grill, but since it needed scraping which I didn’t feel like doing, I kept it simple and oven grilled it. Thankfully Fresh From Florida corn and watermelon are in season so I have time to enjoy a few of my favorite summer treats fresh off the grill. If you’ve never tried grilled watermelon, please add this delicacy to your bucket list.

Florida farmers have been working hard to make sure our favorite fruits and produce are available year-round. Be sure to check for the Fresh From Florida label on your favorite food, produce, and seafood in your local grocery store.

It’s always fun when I get to link up with my neighborhood family. Good neighbors feel like a built-in family. The summer is just starting and we have months of sitting out on the porch. I recently purchased new serving dishes, and I’ll be trying out some of these Fresh From Florida recipes, especially the Florida Sweet Corn and Ricotta fritters in the coming months. One thing is for sure, we are going to hang out, eat good, and have a great time this summer!

I know this isn’t the perfect picture, but it’s us in our element. Neighbors turned family!

  1. We grill most weekends once the weather turns and lately I’ve been trying to shorten the wait time by making some things inside. I can’t wait to try this recipe!
