Raw Corn and Zucchini Salad with Lime Vinaigrette recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen

While I was flipping through this month’s issue of Everyday Food, I saw a recipe for a raw corn salad. I did a double take, because I couldn’t recall ever being tempted to taste raw corn. Naturally, I had to try it.

I loved the different flavors of the raw zucchini and corn. With a very light lime vinaigrette, this was a very fresh tasting salad. I will be making this at least once more this summer while the corn is still at it’s best.

    When I was a kid we used to eat raw corn while still sitting in the garden. I haven't had it since that time though… this does sound delicious!

    I'm sad to say I've never tried raw corn. This needs to change! What a light and refreshing summer salad. Thank you for sharing it with us!
