Grilled Corn Salad

One of my favorite things about Summer is all the fresh fruits and veggies. Our house gobbles up all kinds of fruits and veggies. Corn on the cob is definitely a favorite. The first time I made corn on the cob, I expected each kid to eat one ear of corn. Well I was wrong, they were begging for more corn. I now make at least 2 ears of corn for everyone. Any leftovers we have I either make this corn salad or I freeze it.

I will be honest when I made this salad, I wasn’t sure if anyone but me would like this salad, but everyone loved it. It so many flavors in the cilantro lime dressing and mix with all the ingredients this salad is absolutely amazing. It is light and refreshing, perfect for all the cookouts this summer.
