Skip the Lettuce and Make this Fresh & Easy Summer Corn Salad
Need an easy, delicious salad this summer?
Take advantage of seasonal corn and make this fresh corn salad that’s both full of bright flavors and is also very easy to make! With a zesty olive oil & apple cider dressing and yummy feta cheese, you’ll be the hero of your next cookout! It’s a perfect match with summer grilling.
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!
