Corn Salad Recipe:

This fresh corn salad makes the perfect side dish for summer cookouts! We love to use sweet summer corn cooked on an outdoor grill using this grilled corn in the husk method.

I love how fresh and colorful this salad is but even more so, how freaking easy it is to whip together when we’re hosting a barbecue!
