Grilled Corn Salad

New! You can now save recipes. It's free!
grilled corn salad

This versatile, flavorful corn salad is the perfect way to use up leftover grilled corn. Mix and match your favorite cheeses, herbs, and nuts, but keep the citrus for brightness and oil for a little richness. And if you like a little *kick*, add some sliced jalapeños or a big pinch of red chili flakes. Delicious served cold or at room temperature, this easy dish is potluck gold.  

Our favorite method for cutting corn of the cob goes like this: Place a small bowl upside-down inside a larger bowl. Rest corn vertically on the flat side of the smaller bowl and carefully cut downwards, allowing the kernels to fall into the larger bowl.

Pro tip: This salad can be so much more than just a side. Dip tortilla chips in it like a salsa, use it to top shrimp tacos or avocado toast, or stir in some boiled pasta plus a little more citrus and oil for a quick pasta salad.
