Grilled Corn Salad

This weekend we celebrated the end of summer (sad, we know) with a last day of summer BBQ.  Although the weather didn’t cooperate, there was plenty of warm weather nostalgia provided by all of the tasty summer food. We created this colourful, bright and fresh tasting grilled corn salad as a tasty side. It was such a big hit, we thought we’d share this one with you on the blog. We have a feeling this will become a regular in our repertoire of favourite salads and would also be awesome with grilled shrimp, lobster or fish.
