Corn Salad

During the summer, I love to make ALL types of salads. And this corn salad recipe has become a fast favorite! It’s so light and fresh and only takes 20 minutes to throw together. All of the combined flavors taste fabulous and are so delicious! I love to grill my corn to give it that perfect charred flavor (if you haven’t grilled corn before, definitely try it…it’s SO easy and yummy!), however you can cook your corn any way you prefer. This corn tomato salad is perfect for warm weather and will definitely be on rotation in my house all summer long!

Quick tips for this corn salad recipe

  • There are lots of different ways to cook corn. Try cooking it in the microwave, boiling, or grilling (my favorite!). To grill, simply wrap the corn in foil and cook for 10 minutes, turning occasionally.
  • You can use canned or thawed frozen corn for this recipe, however it won’t taste quite as fresh.
  • Sometimes I’ll add in some diced avocado or grilled chicken to bulk up the salad a little.
  • Crumbled goat cheese, feta or mozzarella would be a great addition to this corn and tomato salad.
  • If you’re not a huge fan of apple cider vinegar, you could substitute with balsamic instead.
  • This corn salad is best if eaten 2-3 days after making. Try adding leftovers to a romaine chicken salad or on this roasted corn and tomato bruschetta.
