Over the weekend my dad cooked an incredible steak dinner with a fresh tossed salad and grilled corn on the cob. We ended up having way too much corn left over and I didn't want it to go to waste. I started searching online for some corn salad recipes. I found a few great ones, but none of them really spoke to me. So I created my own version. I didn't know exactly how it would turn out, but I was very pleasantly surprised with the outcome.
This summer corn salad is so good on it's own and as a side dish. I also think it would be so delicious on top of chicken or steak with sour cream. Think Chipotle burrito bowl. Here is what you will need to create this dish.
- 6 corn on the cob or one bag of frozen corn
- 1 red pepper diced
- 1 orange pepper diced
- 1/2 red onion diced
- Handful of cherry tomatoes cut in halves or quarters
- 1 can of garbanzo beans
- 3 Tablespoons of Italian dressing
Just chop and mix all the ingredients together. This should take about 20 minutes to prepare and feed about 6 to 8 people.
