Cilantro Corn Salad

Pin It
Whenever I visit my parents during the summer it's like winning the farmers market jackpot.
I go home with bags of fresh corn on the cob, zucchini, cucumbers, onions, potatoes, tomatoes and peppers.
Oh and a mason jar full of beautiful zinnias.
My parents have the best garden and they love to share :)

Summer is the perfect time for cold salads and this corn salad is delish.
Use corn cut off the cob if you have it, but it's almost just as good with frozen corn.
Give it a try and let me know what you think.

You may also want to try some of my other favorite summer faves - Wagon Wheel Pasta Salad and Honey Lemon Pasta Salad.

Gotta love summer!!

Cilantro Corn Salad

8 ears fresh sweet corn or 4 cups frozen corn
1 large red pepper, chopped
1/2 of a red onion, chopped
1 pint grape tomatoes, cut in half
1/3 cup cilantro, chopped
1/3 cup fresh lime juice
1/3 cup olive oil
salt and pepper to taste

Cut the fresh corn off the cobb or add the frozen corn to a pot and steam for 3 to 5 minutes in 1/4 cup water.
Remove the lid and cook, stirring, 2minutes more or until water evaporates.
Toss the corn with all other ingredients and chill.
