Corn on the cob and salads are two summer staples you’ll surely be enjoying all summer long. That gave us a crazy thought, what if we combined them into one delicious meal? Well guess what, we did! Read on to try our seasonal Summer Corn Salad recipe.
One of the reasons we love corn is because it’s such a versatile veggie. It can be an entrée of its own in this Summer Corn Salad, a tasty side dish if you love corn on the cob, or even can be enjoyed as a hearty burger in these Sweet Potato and Corn Veggie Burgers >
If you decide to go the Corn Salad route and want to start off with fresh corn, head out to your local grocery store and grab a few ears of corn. Each ear of corn has about ¾ cups of corn, so you’ll want to grab three or four ears to be safe. Feel free to go the canned or frozen corn routes as well! But if you do find yourself staring face to face with a few ears of corn and unsure of how to proceed, check out this video on How to Remove Corn From the Cob in Seconds>
Once you’ve gathered all the necessary ingredients, you’re almost done! All you need to do is cut the cherry tomatoes in half, chop the onion and parsley, and cut the avocado into large chunks. After you’ve finished slicing and dicing, toss all the ingredients into a bowl and toss until they’re fully mixed. And just like that, you’ve got a yummy and healthy meal ready to go!
But if you still feel like your dinner could use a little jazzing up, we have just the thing.
