Summertime is just a great season for refreshing salads using fresh produce that is available to you in your area. The fresh salads just work well with all those items coming off your grill. Another nice feature is they don’t give you that heavy stuffed feeling more often associated with winter foods.
When fresh corn is in season, there is nothing that can beat it. It doesn’t matter if it is on or off the cob too. Like most, I can’t get enough of it on the cob but it’s nice to have other options.
Cutting it off the cob fresh or after it’s been cooked/grilled is not difficult. Use a small cutting board set in a rimmed baking sheet. I, also, find it safer if I cut the cob in half before cutting the kernels off it. It just makes it more secure (cut side down).
So “Corn, Tomato and Basil Salad” is what’s up Wednesday. Then for something a little different, I have “Fresh Summer Corn Cakes” for you on Thursday. These too go well with burgers, dogs or steaks as you grill out this summer.
If you are looking for other recipes for “Fresh Corn” on or off the cob, check out the recipes tabs above. There are several.
“Happy Cooking” until next week and pleas share the link. Thanks.
