I am always looking for new ways to serve the foods I already love. One thing I like to do is prepare different salads. This keeps the vegetable’s nutrients since they are eaten raw or just lightly steamed. Today, I’m sharing a new favorite: a fresh corn salad recipe!

This healthy side dish – or main course for a lunch – is packed with delicious veggies and doesn’t need your regular cheese or dressing, making it a healthy alternative to the traditional salad. Instead, this recipe is flavored with crumbles of feta cheese, lime juice, and vinegar.

This is a great recipe to make ahead of time for a summer barbecue or family dinner. Just pop it into the fridge until you are ready to serve.
