sweet corn salad

summers are the time for salads and light meals. i will be sharing some more salad recipes along with quick meals that can be made in summers. its so hot in these months and in the kitchen it even becomes more hot. i try to keep my cooking easy and not complicated during the summer months.

most salads can be had as a brunch or as a light meal. for some carbs, you can accompany a few slices of toast. i make this salad with different combinations of spices and adding various veggies. carrots, beetroots go very well. even tomatoes can be added. since i have moved to a new house and still not completely settled, i have minimal veggies in kitchen. so added cucumber and onions. please do add your own choice of veggies, spices and herbs when you make this salad. a lot of permutations and combinations are possible in this recipe. i have kept the spicing minimal and this is a simple, basic salad recipe.

i have used fresh sweet corn. though even tinned corn be used. but i do suggest using fresh corn as the taste of salad is better with fresh corn.

  1. 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

    • Thanks Sweta for giving 5 star rating.

  2. very tasty&healthy.

  3. When sweet corn is pressure cooked, it will loss its sweetness. In a bowl add some water. On top of it place a sieve plate. Add corn on the sieve plate. Now cover with a lid. Cook for 10 mins. The steam will cook the corn.

    • thankyou mamatha for sharing your suggestions 🙂 but what i find is that even with pressure cooking the sweetness remains intact. i also steam the sweet corn at times both in cooker as well as in electric cooker and i feel there is no difference in the sweetness between steamed, boiled or pressure cooked corn.

  4. This looks so easy and so delicious. Looking forward to making this for our next BBQ!
