Fresh Corn and Herb Salad

Fresh Local Corn

One of my favorite parts about the summertime, is all of the wonderful, fresh local produce. Corn, in particular, is one of my family’s favorite summer vegetables. We are currently up at our lake house in Vermont, where it’s not quite corn season, but we are getting some delicious corn from the southern states in our markets.

My kids’ favorite way to enjoy corn is on the cob. I’ve mentioned that I often like to prepare a few extra cobs to use in salads such as my Tomato, Corn and Black Bean Salad. Today, I have a new favorite corn salad to share, perfect for using up leftover corn on the cob, this delicious Fresh Corn and Herb Salad.

Simple Preparation

For this Fresh Corn and Herb Salad, I wanted the corn to be the star, so I kept it simple. I had some fresh dill on hand and knew it would pair beautifully with the corn.

I tossed the corn, removed from the cobs, along with some of the chopped dill as well as some chopped fresh mint and chives from my herb garden, and some red onion, in a simple vinaigrette. The resulting salad, is so fresh, delicious and full of flavor.

    Your Fresh Corn and Herb Salad looks really good and it is a great way to use the leftover corn cobs, Joy. I guess the fresh herbs gave the salad a further depth of flavor.
