Summer Corn Salad

Happy #MeatlessMonday!  Thanks for kicking off your week by joining us.  As usual, I’m LinkingUp with Rachel from Running on Happy & Annmarie from The Fit Foodie Mama to bring you some amazing bites for your Meatless Monday meals!

I don’t know about your family, but my family LOVES corn on the cob.  It is actually one of our favorite summer vegetables.  Mini Me and I can eat a couple ears of steamed corn and a couple tomatoes sliced up as a meal that/s how much we love corn!  

So, when I was rushed one Sunday afternoon after the track meet to get some grub on the table for dinner with guests, I threw together this amazingly simple, elegant and refreshing Summer Corn Salad!

Summer-Corn-Salad

You can make this recipe using fresh steamed corn on the cob that you cut off the cob OR when you’re in a hurry like I was this particular day, you can steam some frozen corn and give it a quick ice bath.

Then, cut up some grape tomatoes or tomatoes off your vine and some red onion, make the dressing and serve!  It’s that simple – and oh so yummy!

Corn on the cob is one of our favorite summer vegetables too. Love the idea of cutting it off the cob to make a salad. Thanks for sharing 🙂

We love corn on the cob too, I bake mine in the oven with the husk on. This salad looks great, I bet the onions give it a nice little bite…Thanks for the fun summer dish!
