Corn Salad with Honey-Wasabi Vinaigrette

It's Day 4 of Salad Week and I brought you another vinaigrette-based salad to add to your summer salad repertoire. This time, I used some leftover corn on the cob I had after making too many ears (go figure!), mixed it with some grape tomatoes; then made this sweet and tangy honey-wasabi vinaigrette to give it an Asian flair. 

Corn typically is in season June-August; however, you will start to see some stores and local farmers markets carry the fresh ears in May. I prefer the Butter-Sugar or White Corn variety; as they are generally sweeter than the others. For this recipe, you can use corn that has been cut off of the cob or frozen corn that has been defrosted and drained. This refreshing salad is great, especially for those who don't like to eat corn on the cob (or can't like Gab with her braces!) and would go wonderfully with some of my Asian Pork Spareribs

  1. Ah, braces. This will be the second summer I'm the only one in the house eating corn *on* the cob, so needless to say I'll be cutting kernels off darn near everything we'll get from the CSA farm share.

    This looks like a delicious way to enjoy it. Thanks, Carrie!
