Hello & Happy Monday!!

 

 

 

 

 

If there is one veggie I love for summer, it’s corn! It’s great by itself, thrown in a salad or taco and the list goes on. The best way to enjoy fresh summer corn though? Grilled! I have to believe that just about every veggie tastes better grilled, but especially corn. Something else that pairs really well corn? Anything that has a hint of sweet! Tomatoes or peaches, even red onion, all work together to further enhance the flavor. 

 

 

Love corn too? We’ve done a corn avocado salad, corn

poblano salad, corn fritters and more. 

 

 

When thinking of the next best corn concept, I kept being drawn towards peaches. While more sweet than savory, grilling the peaches enables it to better combine with summer corn.. and just like that, the Grilled Sweet Corn + Peach Salad was born! Believe it or not, basil and sweet corn really go together. Sounds odd, but I promise you, together it’s pure magic! 

 

 

 

 

 


 

What’s great about this salad? Everything! It’s quick, easy, affordable, slightly sweet, slightly savory, perfect for summer, filling, great by itself or on tacos, the dressing just puts it over the top, can easily be made in bulk, vibrant, you could even add an element of heat!
