Easy Fresh Summer Corn Salad – corn cobs ready for prep

Grilled, steamed, boiled, it’s up to you!

This recipe starts with four ears of cooked corn on the cob. How you choose to cook them is up to you. You can even cook them a day prior if you’d like!

I chose to cook mine using the Instant Pot, and it was very EASY and FAST. To do this, set your Instant Pot to 3 minutes on high or manual and make sure to pour in a cup of water along with corn. After cooking, I just let cool and cut corn off the cob.

If desired, you can always just use a few cups of frozen corn instead!

Easy Fresh Summer Corn Salad – in a bowl ready to serve

OK, this salad is SO GOOD.

I mean, what’s not to love? Sweet corn and a lot of delicious flavors are happening here. The feta cheese and fresh basil throw it over the top! In fact, I could probably eat this whole bowl, but I’ll save some for my family.

I’m serving this tonight with some grilled chicken using this Hawaiian chicken marinade recipe. YUM!

  • HIP List
  • Print

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you!
