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!


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!



In the words of Jamie Oliver…..

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!
