Refreshing Sweet Corn and Lime Salad Print Recipe Print Recipe

As you can very well see, I’m holding onto summer for just a wee bit longer. Well, I guess you could say I’ve had one foot in summer and the other in fall. I enjoy my [homemade] pumpkin spice latte in the morning, along with my yogurt and a nectarine. aaaannnd it continues throughout the day.

Last week, Whole Foods had an awesome deal on corn and obviously, I couldn’t resist, I bought two bags. Truth be told, I had never eaten raw corn before, right off the cob. [Have you??] That is until I stumbled upon this from Sprouted Kitchen, I knew exactly what I’d be making. ps. I love this woman and her blog. She inspires me both in the kitchen and behind the lens.

I altered the recipe slightly, the biggest difference being her’s has zip, mine does not. Either way, you’ll be adding this to your favorites within seconds of your first bite. I made this once, fell in love and then again [that same week] and doubled the recipe.

Now, do what can and go hunt down the last of the corn. Use your elbows if you have to.

    I’m holding on to summer too. Love this salad!

  • Bev Weidner

    See, I could eat JUST THAT for dinner.

    14 bowls no less, but still. I’m weak in the knees.

  • sweetsugarbelle

    I already had my eye on your first corn salad, now this one…yummy! On the to do list. Now to go hunt for.corn!

  • Amanda

    This DOES sound so refreshing and delightful! Beautiful presentation as always. 🙂

  • Katie

    This looks so good – this Iowa girl gets her fair share of corn (off the cobb, no less!), and I like this twist to the standard plain corn!

  • Maia

    Corn is my favorite vegetable (if you could really call it a vegetable!), and I am a huge fan of corn salad. Love that your recipe is raw, requiring less work!

    A few weeks ago, we went to Vegas to visit friends performing in Celine Dion’s show and ate at Mesa, Bobby Flay’s restaurant. His corn and lime salad was everyone’s favorite dish. Although ample amounts of mascarpone and cotija cheese make it substantially less healthful than your version, I’ll share the link with you here.

    These are ALL my fave flavors in one. It could only be better if you added Sauvignon Blanc. No wait, gross.

  • Rivki Locker

    I’m heading out to hunt down the last of the summer corn! You can’t stop me!
    I adore raw corn and this looks like a wonderful way to enjoy it.

    Just made this recipe (minus the shallots, I didn’t have any) and it is so amazing. What a giant pop of flavor in each bite. How do you get your cilantro chopped so finely? Mine looks bigger, but then again I dont have much patience with chopping. 🙂

  • Jenn P

    Yum! Finally made this little salad (followed the receipe from Sprouted Kitchen) and it has a hit.

    Looking forward to making more of your yummy creations.
