A Lighter and Healthier Street Corn Salad Recipe

Below, we have another salad that you will love, a healthier street corn salad recipe.

Our vegetable garden is overflowing with fresh produce. We planted corn, tomatoes, green peppers, beans, Brussels sprouts, kale, squash, zucchini, green onions, and pumpkins. We’ve had so much produce we are giving it to neighbors and our chickens and ducks are loving their summer treats.

Having so much means we are having to get creative with our meals because it feels like we are eating the same produce every day. My partner makes delicious street corn, so we decided to put that together with the tomatoes and green peppers from our garden to make a lighter and healthier street corn salad.

How to make street corn salad

Grilled corn is the key ingredient to making this delicious salad. Once it’s grilled, remove the corn kernels from the cob straight into a large bowl. As you can see, we brush the mayonnaise and Tajin seasoning over the corn before grilling it.

While you are grilling the corn, finely dice your green peppers, cut your grape tomatoes into quarters, and finely chop the cilantro.

Combine all of your ingredients (including a squeeze of lime) in your bowl and you can serve immediately, or chill overnight; a salad like this one always seems to taste better the next day.
