Corn Salad

Gluten-Free Summer Corn Salad Recipe

Summer officially begins tomorrow! If the weather is nice tomorrow, I’ll be lounging by the pool with my family. We’ll probably bring out the grill and whip up some lunch outdoors. To accompany the grilled meats and veggie burgers, we’ll have this delicious veggie-rich Summer Corn Salad.

This salad is great because you can chop the veggies ahead of time and throw it together the day you plan to eat it, or make the whole thing ahead of time. It doesn’t take too long to make, it’s mostly just the chopping that requires time, but you could enlist the help of others in your household and cut the chopping time in half (did you see the double puns there?).

This salad is refreshing and light thanks to the simple dressing made of oil and Marukan seasoned rice vinegar, which is also what makes it nice to bring to a backyard barbecue or potluck (it doesn’t use mayo like other summer salads might).
