BBQs, picnics and tailgates are the perfect places to bring this grilled corn salad. This easy corn salad recipe is perfect to make ahead and just grab out of the refrigerator when you are ready to enjoy it.
This grilled corn salad uses a mixture of yellow and white corn but use whichever you prefer. I like the subtle sweetness the white corn adds to the salad but, typically, yellow corn is much easier to fine. Both taste great when grilled and the dressing for this summer corn salad is perfect with it.
Don’t worry if you wake up and weather isn’t perfect for grilling corn. Toss the corn into the oven and easily turn this into a delicious roasted corn salad instead. You will still get all the delicious flavors in the salad.
I love this grilled corn salad recipe with crumbled goat cheese. If you prefer feta, that would be a very easily replacement to make.
