Dana’s Corn Salad

Are you hot yet? In these dog days of summer, I have been experimenting with fresh recipes for hot summer nights. I have been loving vegetable salad recipes that feature summer produce in a new way.  This is one of my favorite summer side dishes. It is a change from the classic corn on the cob and is a great make ahead dish to bring on a picnic.

    Thanks, looks good. I am always looking for light salads that have no mayo ( egg allergy). can’t wait to try!
