grilled corn salad with fresh herbs recipe

I hope that you had a great Independence Day. We had a wonderful day despite being rained out. Hurricane Arthur made his appearance and cancelled the fireworks and festivities. We ended up spending the day reading books, watching movies, and catching up on some of our shows. Have you been watching Orphan Black? It is so good, we are way into it.

I promised to share the corn salad that went along with my Texas Tommy and Slider post and here it is. I have made this at least 4 times since I took these pictures almost a month ago. I love everything about this salad. It is sweet from the corn and the balsamic, crunchy from the vegetables, and has tons of fresh herbs. The longer this sits, the better it tastes. I like it as a side dish, and I also like it as part of my main dish with some grilled chicken on top.

If you can’t find white lemon balsamic vinegar, don’t worry about it. Just use lemon juice and honey. If you can find it, I recommend picking up a bottle. I have been using this a lot lately, on just about everything. It is really good in a pasta salad.

  1. This looks amazing Bree! Love the sweetness of the corn! I bet it would be great with some grilled salmon!

    Hi Bree – looks delicious! Once we get our corn this will appear on the table. Meanwhile, website question – your current posting (this one) is not showing up as your home page. When I select your blog from my list, I get the last VA post – the Berry Almond Tarts. I don’t know if this is me or is a result of you not having full internet access, or what. Tech savvy I am not!

    Ignore my previous comment. I hit “submit” and poof! Problem solved.
