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!

    I made this before but I dont care for tomatoes or onions so I replace it with cucumbers and bacon crumbled up. YUM

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Wow! That sounds wonderful <3

  2. HipMomof3

    Yummy! Think cilantro would be good in place of the basil?

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh I think so! Yum.

    • 3WonkyDogs

      Cilantro- my thoughts exactly! Thank you for this recipe, Lina. Even I can make this!

      • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

        You’re welcome – enjoy!

  3. countrygal

    This sounds really yummy, I’ll be making this. I’m a salad lover.
    Thanks for posting.

  4. Jlinsey

    Do you think you could make this the night before?

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yes- however consider adding chopped basil right before serving.

    • 50ShadesofLipstick

      I’d dress it before serving, if making it the night before. The dressing has acid which will break down the tomatoes and can make them mushy.

      • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

        Oh good tip!

  5. jaci

    keep em coming love easy recipes!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

  7. Rockstar

    I adore your recipes! You should consider a publishing a cookbook; they truly are simple, delicious, and family friendly. ♥️

    • Christina

      Yes! I’d snap that up in a heartbeat

      • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

        Ah thanks Christina!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      That’s such a nice comment – thank you! ❤️

  8. SleepyDean

    Oh man I’ve got some corn to use up and I passed up on some cheap grape tomatoes at Aldi today.

  9. Penny

    Yummy! I can eat my share of it.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Thanks Penny!

  10. Lisa

    What could you replace the feta with? I love everything else just not that.

    • AZ

      Mozzarella pearls or marinated baby mozzarella

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      You can just omit it or replace with another type of cheese. 👍

  11. HipMomof3

    I’m kind of thinking about making this with your chicken avacado cilantro recipe, either as a side or on the sandwich. Just went and got all the ingredients for all of it.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh 😋 YUMMM. Sounds great!

  12. Lindsey

    I made this last week and it was amazing! The only change I made was omitting the feta. We had it for a side one night and then snacked on it for a few days afterward. Thanks for the recipe 🙂

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Awesome! Thanks for coming back to share 😀

  13. ReneeAnn

    If I added avocado do you think the dressing would prevent it from turning brown?

  14. cfed

    I make a variation of this all summer long! I add cucumbers and cilantro (black beans optional) … and do not put in basil, cheese or oil. I just add balsamic vinegar and S&P! It is always a huge hit at summer get togethers!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yum! Thanks for sharing ❤️
