Summer corn salad with tomatoes and feta. So simple, but completely addicting. A naturally gluten-free side and great way to enjoy fresh corn and tomatoes!
This summer corn salad is such a simple, yet tasty summer side. I’ve made it 3 times over the past month or so for different events and ever time I have to stop myself from eating the whole thing before the guests arrive!
It has simple ingredients, but they all work so perfectly together. This recipe is adapted from an Ina Garten recipe for sweet corn salad with basil. I like adding feta, parsley and using different amounts of the ingredients, but I still use her tip of adding apple cider vinegar for the dressing. I would have never guessed cider vinegar and fresh corn go so well together.
What are your go-to sides for a summer BBQ? I heart BBQ food so much. Especially because so much of it is naturally gluten-free.
My favorites are classic potato salad, baked beans (the Trader Joe’s kind are so good!), pasta salad, and this corn salad. And of course a big, cold watermelon to go with it all. This little gem of a side has won me over and made it into my regular repertoire of go-to grilling sides. I hope you love it too!
