Recipe Directions

After husking and cutting corn from cob, pull out as many corn silks as possible. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Serve immediately or allow to marinate. This salad is even better the next day!

What better time to share this simple salad recipe then when the farmer’s markets, roadside stands, and grocery stores (if you must!), are brimming with tender ears of sweet corn. I created this recipe last year after learning from a local farmer that you can eat sweet corn raw without it ever touching a grill or a pot of boiling water. I was able to convert many naysayers last summer, and now it’s time for me to make a believer out of you!

This recipe is a winner--so good! I made it with the ingredients I had on hand (dill as the herb, green onions instead of red, lemon instead of lime) and omitted the oil to save calories.

Made this again and YUMMO! This time I used basil instead, NO OIL, no pepper and it is DEELISH! I might try putting some jalapeno pepper on it when I eat it over spiralized zucchini later, and we'll see how that goes :)

I think I like the basil better.

I made this last night, and it was SO good. I used half the oil, and replaced the other half with some apple cider vinegar. I added a couple chopped green onions and a clove of garlic. Yumm!!

(And I used cilantro, rather than basil)

I saw this recipe as a tweet and made it for lunch. It is such a beautiful salad - I tried it with cilantro. Great for when I'm tired of chewing leaves. :)

I use a variety of corns in my version of this. My preference is Silver Queen, which is a white corn. I don't think it will make a big difference in the end product.

I do something very similar with corn and avocado that includes diced squash, zucchini and tomato, along with fresh chives, and it NEVER tastes complete without fresh cilantro. I've got fresh basil, but never thought of trying it. On my list of things to experiment with this summer. Maybe half basil, half cilantro? What do you think?

Yes! I've made it with cilantro too and it is delicious. Although, my taste testers agreed that they like the not so obvious pairing of basil with ingredients that you would expect to be combined with cilantro. I'll add that suggestion. Thanks!

I bet Cilantro would be great in here (and maybe some chopped tomato). Yum
