Light Summer Corn Salad

Looking for a fabulous salad with minimum calories? Check out this wonderful Garden Fresh Corn Salad!

Are you growing a garden this year?  Or maybe checking out the local Farmer’s Market?  I don’t think there is any flavor in the world like that which comes from garden fresh veggies.  Even if you don’t have them fresh though, this recipe is super yummy and great for picnics, brunches and pot lucks!  I’m definitely going to be making it for next year’s July 4th bash!

Ingredients:

4 Ears of Corn, cooked with kernals removed

-or- 3 cups corn kernals

1/2 sweet onion, chopped

1 medium tomato, chopped

1/3 c of your favorite mayo

2 Tbsp lime juice

3 Tbsp finely chopped Basil leaves

-or- 6 Tbsp dried basil

Directions:

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and stir.  You can serve immediately or make it a day or two in advance.  As is typical, the flavors meld wonderfully after it’s been sitting a while.  Just remember to keep it cool if you use an egg based mayo.

What is your favorite way to prepare fresh summer veggies?
