Grilled Corn Salad

posted in: Recipes 0

Growing up, one of the best things about summer was getting fresh picked corn from a nearby farm. It is so sweet and crisp, I loved it. I remember my dad would stop and grab 10 ears for less than a couple bucks, and then head back a day or two later. We had corn coming out of our ears (sorry, had to...) One thing that we never did, but I really enjoy now, is grilling the corn. It's a perfect adder to a summer salad with MIND healthy grape tomatoes and spinach. To add a little crunch, I add just a little bacon and serve with a bacon vinaigrette.
