Herb Butter Spread
From EatingWell: July/August 2012
Try this herb butter spread with olive oil to top corn on the cob. Make a few batches at a time and store in the refrigerator for an easy way to jazz up sweet corn all summer long. Use it cold or let it come to room temperature before serving.

- 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

- 1/4 teaspoon salt
