A mix of corn and tomatoes, this Fresh Corn Salad just screams summer. It’s the ideal side to grilled steak, burgers, or chicken as you’ll need the grill anyway to prepare the corn. The tangy dressing is a perfect complement to the sweet and bright salad. Fresh Corn Salad is healthy and vegan, making it a great thing to bring along to a summer barbecue.
