END OF SUMMER CORN SALAD

Let’s celebrate those amazing crops while we still have them available to us! As summer starts to come to a close, grabbing fresh corn helps us linger in the warm sunshine a bit longer. Freezing your fresh corn (once cooked and off the cob) or purchasing frozen corn, can help create some salad sunshine any time of the year as well.
