fresh corn salad for you!

with summer fast approaching and all of impending bbq's that implies, i thought i would re-share one of our all time favorite recipes. we love it so much we even served it at our wedding!

this is the perfect dish to bring along to a potluck because the cost is low and it yields a lot to go around. plus, it is a cold fresh delicious treat on any day. all of our kids even love it and that is always a plus!

everyone who we ever make this for begs for the recipe, so here it is!
fresh corn salad
8 ears fresh corn, blanched
1 tomato, chopped
1 zucchini, chopped
1 cucumber, peeled and chopped
1 red onion, chopped
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1/2 c. italian salad style dressing

in large bowl mixed together (husked, sliced, and blanched) corn and all other veggies. pour dressing over and toss to coat. refrigerate until chilled, about 1 hour.

side note: when we made this for our big day and were counting on serving 100+ people, we went with organic frozen options to cut down on cost and prep time. something to consider if you want to make it for a big crowd!
