Grilled Corn Salad with Fresh Herbs

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.

[…] Grilled Corn Salad with Fresh Herbs – There are very few things that I love more than fresh and sweet summer corn. This salad has all of my favorite things, crunchy vegetables and lots of fresh herbs. It’s great alongside burgers and hot dogs or even a nice grilled fish. It also gets better the longer it sits.

This is the most fabulous fresh corn salad! I have been asked to share the recipe every time I make it. The fresh herbs really make it delicious. I use basil, dill and chives. The owner of our local kitchen store stocks the lemon white balsamic vinegar. She loves the recipe, too, and has shared it with her customers! This is a 5-star recipe!!!
