Nothing screams more summer than a vibrant simple salad! I can’t get enough of salads during the summer months. Pasta salads are really my first to go recipes, but when you’re craving a bowl of freshness, this corn salad recipe is the best!

This summer corn salad recipe is my first choice if someone invites us to a BBQ or a get together and asks to bring a side salad to share. Why? One of the main reasons I always choose this salad recipe is because it takes less than 20 minutes to put together and it doesn’t get soggy, if not served immediately.

How to Make Summer Corn Salad?

It is so quick and easy to put together everything.
We start by grilling the corn until it’s slightly tender, or use prepackaged corn kernels (from a tin or frozen) if you’re in a hurry. This will reduce the amount of time spent on this recipe. We add halved cherry tomatoes and mix. Right before serving, we add the dressing (your choice, I have used an Italian Salad dressing), crumbled feta cheese, give it a good toss and it’s ready to be served!
