Feta Corn Salad
Feta Corn Salad is a refreshing and healthy side dish or main course. It’s utilizes fresh ingredients and tastes delicious!
Do you enjoy eating raw corn? We’re talking, fresh corn cut right off the cob ?
If you said, “Yes,” we’re in luck! Because this Feta Corn Salad has fresh corn cut right off the cob. No cooking necessary!
However, if you said, “No,” then feel free to go back and change your answer. ?
But really, if you’re one who doesn’t enjoy raw corn, you’ll change your tune after eating this delicious corn salad!
A few things I love about this salad:
- It uses fresh corn! If you have a garden bursting at the seams with delicious corn (like my dad) then you MUST make this.
- The seasoning for this salad consists of salt, pepper, and FRESH MINT! Yassss!!!
- Basically, if you have a garden you’ll love this Feta Corn Salad because it’s a great way to utilize fresh produce.
Ingredients in Feta Corn Salad
- Fresh corn
- Fresh mint
- Olive oil
- Salt & Pepper
- Feta cheese!!!
Feta cheese is so yummy! It’s salty and tangy which balances out the sweetness of the summer corn and the fresh mint.
How to make Feta Corn Salad
- It’s as easy as chopping up the ingredients, adding it to a medium sized bowl, and tossing it together.
- If you’re skeptical about the fresh mint, you can substitute fresh basil. However, I haven’t tried it with the basil so I can’t guarantee you’ll love the result. Keep in mind, basil pairs well with each of the ingredients in the salad so it should work out just fine. ?
When I made this salad the other day, I opted to use this as our side dish rather than steam a pan of broccoli for dinner. I must say, we really enjoyed eating this salad! It was a welcomed change over the normal broccoli.
For those of you with a garden, I hope you make this healthy corn salad! It takes 15 minutes to make and has such a fresh and light taste to it.
