Refreshing Summer Corn Salad

Tired of pasta salad, potato salad or coleslaw for your summer picnic? Then you should try my new creation of this Summer Corn Salad.

Made this last weekend and I was suprised how good the salad was (Ok ok.. I am not trying to praise myself here but the salad is really really good... ;)

This is a super easy recipe. Fresh corn or frozen corn can be used in this recipe. However, always try your corn first before you add in all the sugar call for in this recipe. Why has to taste the corn first? Because fresh corn kernel is usually sweeter than the frozen corn.

Here is the recipe:

2.5 lbs thawed frozen/fresh corn
1/2 lb diced cucumber
1/2 lb diced tomato
1/2 lb diced yellow onion
1/2 cup white sugar
1 cup vinegar (I like to use sesoned rice vinegar)
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 tbs salt
1 tsp black pepper

1) Combine corn, cucumber, tomato and onion in a mixing bowl.
2) In a separate bowl, combine sugar, vinegar, oilve oil, salt and pepper together and whsik it for a few minutes.
3) Pour the dressing into corn mixture and chill the corn salad in the frdge for a few hours before serving.
4) Enjoy your corn salad!!
