Simple Corn Salad

Use some of your garden produce in this yummy salad!


  • 3 cups frozen corn kernels, thawed

  • 4-5 Roma tomatoes, diced

  • 2 ribs celery, chopped

  • 1/3 cup chopped red onion

  • 1/3 cup chopped green pepper

  • 1/4 cup olive oil

  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon cracked black pepper

  • 4 cups bagged lettuce, assorted kinds


Combine first 4 ingredients in a large bowl; toss gently. Combine oil and next 3 ingredients, stirring with a whisk. Drizzle over corn mixture; stir gently. Add lettuce, toss gently to coat. This is a delicious portable side salad; mound lettuce on top of the dressed salad; then toss just before serving to keep the salad crisp. For salad in a jar, layer corn salad into pint jars, top with lettuce. Invert on plate to serve. (Dressing can be doubled for extra drizzling if desired).
