A wonderful corn salad, savory and fresh-tasting. This recipe is fabulous with silver queen corn in the summer, but is also great with yellow sweet corn all year long!

Nice and different when you don't feel like your regular old salad. I served it with a bit of pesto pasta and ciabatta on the side and it was a great summer lunch. However I had to make some changes. I had to use a yellow pepper instead of a red one and that with the corn made it look like a yellow mess on lettuce. I would definitely go for the red next time. Also dicovered too late that I had no honey added a bit of sugar trying to fix it but I'm sure it wasn't the same. And finally the recipe doesn't say so but it would be nice to chill it for a bit before serving. I'll make this again and try to follow the recipe more closely. Read More

Recipe was very good. Other than adding some tomatoes I followed the recipe as is. Salad dressing a tad too sweet - would use 1/2 the honey next time. Also the corn avocado peppers bacaon etc. were very "heavy" and made their way down to the bottom of the salad bowl - next time I will arrange the salad on individual salad plates and drizzle the salad dressing on top for a more appealing and dramatic look.

This was really good. I roasted my corn on the grill brushed with olive oil and sprinkled with garlic salt first. Also added cucumber. I'm surprised not more people have tried and rated with recipe. Great summer salad. Dressing was unbelievably good. Not hard to make. Read More

Nice salad! I used baby corn and romaine. I thought I had regular corn and was mistaken - will try that next time but enjoyed it fine with baby corn too. Thanks! Read More

Pretty good but given my "tweaks " I thought it only fair to give this recipe only four stars as written. Rather than use prepared/commercial dressings I used a quarter-cup each of olive oil and wine vinegar... and three tablespoons of crumbled bleu cheese. I also used half of the called-for bacon; just didn't think it needed all eight slices. I also eliminated the lettuce altogether and added a diced tomato and a diced cucumber. This will be my lunch at the office next week. Oh... and perhaps because of my cutting back on the bacon and eliminating the bottled dressings I found the final salad benefited by the addition of healthy pinch of Kosher salt. Read More
