Summer Sweet Corn Salad Recipe

Summer sweet corn salad recipe

Here’s a quick and easy salad recipe that makes use of a bounty of late-summer produce. I threw this salad together the other day in an effort to use up odds and ends in my refrigerator: sweet corn cut off the cob, mini heirloom tomatoes, and goat cheese. This last-minute, throw-together dish ended up tasting really good, and I’m quite certain I’ll be making it again.

Here are two fresh tips for saving money on food:

  • Eat seasonally – Fresh corn on the cob is a steal this time of the year
  • Use leftovers – Eat the same meal again, or get creative and repurpose leftovers

    Corn, tomatoes, and cheese–hooray! I think half the things I’ve eaten in the past week have had at least one of these ingredients included. 🙂 Perfect late summer food!
