Summer Corn & Zucchini Salad with Citrus Dressing

Happy Labor Day Weekend!! Sorry I haven’t posted in a while but we were away on an AMAZING vaca out in Utah and Colorado. I will be posting pictures and fun out west veggie foods soon.

We still have a little bit of time left for summer corn. But I wanted to make sure to get the most out of it because I love summer corn! I usually eat it raw, but it was a pleasant change to cook it for this salad. But of course you could have it raw as well.

I ended up having extra dressing left over and it will be great for salads the rest of the week.

Summer Corn & Zucchini Salad with Citrus Dressing

6 ears cooked corn, kernels removed from cob (about 4 cups kernels)
2 small zucchini, thinly sliced
2 bunches scallions, thinly sliced (white parts only)
1/4 cup finely chopped flat-leaf parsley

Citrus Dressing
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper, to taste

1. To make dressing, mix lime juice and mustard together. Slowly beat in olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Pour into a lidded container.
2. In a medium bowl, toss together corn, zucchini & scallions. Sprinkle with parsley. Cover and chill several hours or overnight. When you are ready to serve the salad add dressing and toss well to coat.
