It’s officially summer and along with summer comes…
Fresh produce from local farmer’s markets…especially corn!
Here in Ohio – corn is king and it’s a celebration when farm fresh corn arrives.
I’m celebrating it’s arrival with this colorful healthy charred corn salad that I found from the Kitchenette blog.
It’s so easy to make and the flavors compliment each other perfectly.
Without a doubt, the charred corn is the star of the show. I charred the corn in my big black cast iron skillet. As it was heating up, the sweetness of the corn took on a toasty flavor. Towards the end, several kernels even started popping on me!
I served this as a side dish to pork carnitas last night for my annual girls’ night on the deck.
It was a hit and they all asked for the recipe…so here you go!
