Had some delicious sweet corn, so this is what I threw together...I used what I had on hand...it turned out delicious...I love the taste of the charred corn in this salad...you could use frozen corn that's been thawed and drained.

Enjoy!

Ingredients

5 - 6 medium
fresh, sweet corn on cob
1 small
red onion, diced small
3 - 4 Tbsp
green or red bell pepper, diced - could grill as well...i didn't
12
sweet grape tomatoes - halved
3 - 4 slice
fried crisp bacon & crumbled or real bacon bits
1/4 c
feta cheese crumbles or asiago would be great
kosher salt & cracked black pepper to taste
3 Tbsp
each - olive oil and rice vinegar or your favorite
1/2 tsp
dried basil or 1 tsp fresh, chopped
red
pepper flakes to taste - optional

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat your grill. Husk corn and I pour a little olive oil in my hand and rub each cob until lightly coated...salt and place on grill. I grill just until some char marks and most of the starchiness is gone...about 5 - 6 minutes, turning frequently.

Let cool, then I use my mandolin to remove from cob...can use a sharp knife.
2
Place pepper, onion, tomatoes in a bowl, then add the cooled corn.
3
In a small dish, mix the vinegar, salt, pepper, oil and basil. Pour over corn mixture and toss well to coat. Taste to see if needs more seasonings.

Chill for a few hours, then before serving - toss in some bacon and feta cheese if desired.

Enjoy!
