These tasty pork tacos use Apricot Glazed Grilled Pork from one of my other recipes and are topped with grilled corn salsa for a unique twist on taco night!



For the corn salsa: 

  • 4 ears of corn, husks removed
  • 1 tablespoon grapeseed oil
  • 2 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
  • juice and zest from one lime
  • 1/4 cup cilantro leaves, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon hot sauce (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • salt and pepper to taste

For the cilantro lime sauce: 

  • 1/3 cup plain greek yogurt
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon lime zest
  • 1 tablespoon minced green onion
  • 1/4 cup cilantro leaves, chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon finely minced jalapeño

For the tacos: 


  1. Grill the corn. Preheat a grill, or grill pan, to medium-high heat.  Brush the corn with grapeseed oil (you can substitute olive oil if you like).  Place corn on the grill and cook for about 20 minutes, turning after 5 minutes or so on each side.  You want the corn to be slightly charred.  Remove from the grill and cool slightly.
  2. Make the salsa. Using a sharp knife or corn removal tool,  remove corn from the cobs and place in a medium mixing bowl.  Add the oil, lime juice, zest, cilantro, hot sauce, sugar and avocado.  Mix well.
  3. Assemble the tacos. To assemble the tacos warm the tortillas either on the grill or in a skillet.  Add the sliced pork and top with salsa, cilantro lime sauce and queso fresco.  Garnish with extra cilantro if desired and serve immediately.
