Ear’s to summer! Corn on the cob is a great way to get started with this corn and zucchini basil salad.
It’s always a good idea to think about what seasonal veggies will be available. Summer boasts a ton of awesome veggies; corn is my favorite! I love corn on the cob whether it’s boiled and covered in lime and sea salt, grilled and topped with cilantro, or just plain ol’ by itself. The sweet kernels are so addicting that it’s hard for me to eat just one ear! If you’re like me, you’re going to be looking for ways to incorporate corn into your diet in these hot summer months, and this zucchini and corn salad is perfect! Packed with veggies and full of simple flavors, this salad is great to take to a potluck or even just have in the fridge for when you need some wholesome veggie goodness. This dish comes together in about 10 minutes so you know you can have a healthy side in no time at all. Try grilling the corn if you want a charred flavor, or try adding other veggies like yellow squash or cucumbers for extra crunch!
