Our corn salad recipe has been a reader favourite for a couple of years now that we have finally made it on video thanks to you! You asked…we listened!
Corn salad is SO EASY! With a handful of fresh ingredients, you have one of the best salads full of juicy, sweet corn, ripe tomatoes, creamy avocado pieces and red onion slices. We’ve made this extremely versatile for you:
- CORN: Use fresh OR canned in this recipe. We prefer fresh corn boiled in milk for plump, juicy corn kernels.
- TOMATOES: Grape tomatoes have an amazing flavour, bursting with tomato juice. Use cherry or Roma in their place if you prefer.
- ONION: Red onion is great but green onion slices or chives will also work.
How To Make A Good Salad!
Our corn salad is to die for and can be served with anything! Fish, chicken, steak, pork, shrimp, it goes with all of it. Or, leave out the protein and dive head first into this bowl. Either way, it’s your choice!
Corn Salad Dressing
You will love this fan-favourite dressing with a base of lime juice and olive oil. We also add cilantro to ours, but if you’re not a fan you can substitute it for parsley. Add in a pinch of cumin, optional minced garlic, salt and red chili flakes, and you’re onto a winner!
