This is the crunchy corn salad, also known as the “Summer Party in Your Mouth!” I mentioned a few days ago.
It’s just a few simple ingredients. As you might expect, there’s corn…and there’s also tomatoes, basil, olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper.
I’ve been making it at least once a week for a month, and every time the fam-bam gobbles it all up. It’s good! Of course you can tweak it to your liking. The way I describe it here, it comes together in about 15 minutes.
So far, I’ve served it with hot dogs, with parmesan chicken, with basil parmesan salmon, with caprese salad, and lemon pasta, and…well, it rocks with just about any protein and side. I also HIGHLY recommend it on its own with a side of crusty, fresh bread. YUM!
Fresh corn is preferred, but I’m not above using frozen or canned corn if that’s all I have in the house.
If you’re using fresh corn, you’ll have to remove the kernels from the cobs first… So that’s something to consider. It probably takes the most time.
I do it by taking two bowls — one big, one small — and start by inverting the smaller bowl inside the bigger one so that the edge of the smaller bowl sits flat inside the bigger bowl.
