Southern Corn

Just saw at the grocery store that Florida corn was in and on sale! Why do I love Florida corn? The truth is because my Mama always told how good it was and it is imprinted on my brain. My taste buds just naturally follow, but I think that it really is good!

Corn is such a versatile vegetable. In the winter, I love it in a corn pudding. In the summer, grilled or roasted is the way to go! You know, I’ll be stocking up!

Today’s Lagniappe:  Corn Salad
Another great way to enjoy sweet corn in the summertime.

* 6 ears corn, husked and cleaned
* 3 large tomatoes, diced
* 1 large onion, diced
* 1 cucumber, peeled, seeded and diced
* 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
* 1/4 cup vegetable oil
* 2 tablespoons white vinegar
* salt and pepper to taste


1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook corn in boiling water for 7 to 10 minutes, or until desired tenderness. Drain, cool, and cut kernels off the cob with a sharp knife.
2. In a large bowl, toss together the corn, tomatoes, onion, cucumber, basil, oil, vinegar, salt and pepper. Chill until serving.

    We still have weeks before native corn will be ready…but am saving your corn salad recipe. If it tastes half as good as your photo looks, I will be very happy!

    This recipe looks absolutely delicious. My mother makes a similar recipe that she calls “Corn Salad” but I like the additional ingredients that you have placed in yours. I will definitely add this to my recipe binder as summer meals to make.

    Take care,

    My hubby made grilled corn-on-the-cob for Mother’s Day. It was yummy!! Along with grilled steak & baked potatoes.
