Sweet corn salad ~ is there anything better? These corn salad recipes made with fresh summer veggies and fabulous dressings make the cob sort of…irrelevant!
sweet corn salads
Yesterday at the farmers market I loaded up my market tote with so much corn it broke right through the bottom. I’m a little crazy when it comes to corn, it’s one of my all-time favorite foods and I will buy impractical amounts, especially in August. But there is a limit to how many ears a girl can eat, even when you factor in breakfast 🙂 Luckily I’ve got lots of fresh sweet corn salads on the site that go way beyond the cob. I’ll power through this in no time!
The glory of sweet juicy corn kernels is a given, but I had no idea that pairing them with such a simple buttermilk dressing and fresh basil was going to be quite this delicious. I could seriously eat a whole bowl of this stuff, it’s that good!
This salad celebrates corn’s refreshing side. Crunchy kernels meet crisp cucumbers, fresh dill, and a little thinly sliced red onion for some punch. I especially love this cooling salad alongside spicy entrees like barbecue or grilled chicken.
The flavors of Mexican street corn are famously delicious, and make a great alternative to your basic potato salad. Fresh juicy lime, herbaceous cilantro, creamy mayo, cheese, and a little spice all come together for a super fun summer side.
Really good sweet corn and really good watermelon are really only available in the summertime, so take advantage and team them up! I especially love this juicy salad served with fish or tacos, but who am I fooling? I just snack on it all day long.
This summery salad is a family tradition – it gets tossed together several times a summer for gatherings and cookouts. This salad is incredibly healthy, and surprisingly satisfying!
Lightly charred corn adds such a lovely sweet ‘n smoky flavor to this loaded bean salad. You can blister the corn on the grill, or under your broiler ~ it tenderizes the kernels and adds instant interest to any corn salad.
