Fresh Corn Salad


Fresh Corn Salad for a Treat

The first time I made Fresh Corn Salad, I had a bunch of leftover corn from a farmer’s market that I needed to use up.  I thought a salad would be a great change from the typical corn on the cob I had been serving my family.  Boy, was I on to something!  Sweet corn mixed with a bit of spicy red onion, earthy basil, and a fresh apple cider vinegar dressing was an amazing combination that really had them talking.  My family loved it so much, I made it for a big gathering and had people asking me for the recipe.  So, here it is!

Simple Ingredients, Big Flavor with Fresh Corn Salad

When choosing corn for your Fresh Corn Salad, look for fresh corn that has firm kernels.  I find the best, freshest corn at farmer’s markets.  They usually have wonderful varieties and will tell you all about how sweet and tender they are.  Red onions can also be found at farmer’s markets, or at your favorite grocery store.  You don’t need a huge onion for this salad, so make it when you can use the rest of the onion in something else.  Fresh basil works best for Fresh Corn Salad.  I’ve used dried with less than spectacular results.  If you aren’t growing your own basil, check the grocery store to see if they have any because it really gives the best possible flavor.  I use an organic apple cider vinegar, as I adore the flavor, but use your favorite in Fresh Corn Salad for the best flavor for you.

Adding More to Fresh Corn Salad

If you want more flavor in your Fresh Corn Salad, try adding roasted peppers or other garden vegetables.  You can get a lot of color and flavor with just a few bits of roasted carrots or zucchini.  Even peas or beans can add a lot if you have some.  Add flavors that your family loves to make Fresh Corn Salad your very own.
