Summer Corn Salad
Can you believe that we’re inching our way this week to the unofficial start of summer? Memorial Day weekend is traditionally when we all mentally switch over to summertime in our heads.In Michigan, we can still be feeling cool temps, but summer mode kicks in. BBQ grills start getting their seasonal workouts starting now.
Looking at our weather, we may not even see the sun but that’s not gonna stop us from enjoying the beginning of a glorious season. Winter was way too long to keep us down now.
One thing that the grilling season brings along with it…a freshness and change in flavors that I love embracing. Whether you have a garden, hit up the farmers market or just load up at the grocery store, what gets purchased would be summer favorites.
I also enjoy incorporating corn into other dishes such as this amazing Summer Corn Salad. This side dish is simple to prepare ahead of time and great with anything you decide to grill.
Salads are an obvious go-to during the summer season. I’m always looking to vary our choices and Summer Corn Salad is a welcome addition to our favorite summer sides. I bet your family will love it too.
