This quick and easy salad is so tasty as a replacement for other salads at picnics, pitch-ins, and barbecues. No mayo to spoil, and goes together in a snap. I've left out the tomato and it's still great. In winter, I make this with hamburgers to remind us summer is not far away. I use super-sweet, sweet yellow and white, or Summer Crisp corn. If you use fresh sweet corn, be sure to blanch it first and then give it a bath in ice water to keep it crispy. Tasty ! Easily doubled -- this batch makes just enough for my husband and I.

This is my submission--I suppose it's not great to rate your own recipe but I made this tonight and tried some new things with it--was great and wanted to share the ideas. Tonight I used 1 Tblsp sugar and 1 Tblsp Splenda with 2 Tblsp cider vinegar and 1 Tblsp rice wine vinegar. This is the amount of sweetness we like in it but some like it a little less sweet so adjust to your own taste. Also for tonight I used a can of Summer Crisp Mexicorn (I think its called Southwestern actually) that had red and green peppers and black beans in it. Added a can of rinsed great northern beans also. Was REALLY good with the beans added protein and fiber. Thanks to all who have reviewed--it helps to get feedback. I appreciate that and I'm glad you liked the salad. Read More

Too much sugar. 1 tsp is all it needs. I substituted white balsamic vinegar for the apple cider vinegar and green onion for the sweet onion. It was attractive and delicious. Fabulous when you use raw fresh corn kernels cut off the cob. I make this frequently. p.s. I freeze the corn cobs and use them later to make corn chowder. Read More

LOVED THIS...took to a barbeque and hubby had filled his plate and tasted this corn salad. He said "who made this great corn?". He didn't know what I had made for the meal. He's has a very discerning palate but does like things on the sweet side. This was definitely the hit of the meal in a family that really knows how to cook and enjoy food. Followed the recipe exactly except that I had a small shallot I wanted to use so replaced the sweet onion. Will be making again definitely! Thanks for sharing. Read More

This is a great way to get more raw veggies into your diet. I used half appple cider vinegar and half white vinegar. I also used a packet of stevia instead of sugar. I loved it and intend on using it regularly for my family as well as for pot luck dish. Read More

This salad is very good. I enjoyed it. I thought the dressing went well with this. I did add jalapeños instead of green bell peppers to give it a little more kick. Thanks for sharing this recipe. Read More

I like this because you can pick and choose veggies or stir-up the dressing according to your preferences. I used freshly cooked corn-on-cob and cut it off. Read More
