Corn is a VEGETABLE and is therefore healthy. Have a few bites with your protein and savor the fresh crispness of summer corn. Chew it well!

Rather than covering up flavor in butter, this salad is light, healthy, and versatile as it goes with almost any grilled sliced meat, fish or seafood. It’s a great dish to have in your pocket to pull together a weeknight patio meal.
