Grilled Corn Summer Salad with Pickled Blueberries

Recipes

Summer is the season of freshness. Delicious fruits and vegetables are in abundance. When it comes to the bounty of summer, I am all about diving in and enjoying it as much as I can before it’s gone.

I tend to create the most recipes in the summer months because, in my opinion, summertime is when farm to table eating is at it’s best. It’s one of my favorite things about the season. 

On many summer mornings, I love to get out before the day heats up and head to the farmer’s market, basket in hand. I am always in awe of the beautiful selection so many local farmers have to offer.  I take great care in choosing perfectly ripe heirloom tomatoes, fresh butter beans, ears of corn, sweet blueberries, and juicy watermelon and peaches. It’s hard to resist the bounty of summer.

Today, I am sharing one of my favorite summer salads. I created this salad around my love for grilled corn. The first time I tried grilled corn, I was hooked.  The char from the barbecue grill and caramelization that occurs when you grill corn makes it irresistible and incredibly delicious.

With it’s fresh ingredients and easy assembly, this Grilled Corn Summer Salad with Pickled Blueberries is the perfect side dish for any barbecue meal. On the farm, we especially love it with burgers, grilled chicken, or ribs. You can even serve it with corn chips as an appetizer.

I hope you enjoy it as much as my family and I do!
