Easy Corn Salad
Have you ever run out the door to a party and remembered at the last minute that you were supposed to bring a side dish? If this ever happens to you again, don't get freaked out—you can get this dish together in time for the party (I've done it in 10 minutes).
You can make it with fresh corn, sliced and blanched, but for ease of preparation I use frozen corn outside the months of July and August.
Other recipe variations include:
- Adding a rinsed can of black beans and serving in lettuce bundles
- Adding chopped avocado for a little creaminess
- Adding crumbled queso fresco for a salty roundness
