Blueberry Corn Salad

The weather is perfect in Salt Lake City right now, which makes me want to lay on a blanket in the grass and do nothing else. Too bad my “to do” list is a mile long. I am behind after being in Seattle last week for BlogHer Food. I’m not complaining because Seattle was totally worth it, but that blanket in the sun is still calling my name:)

I finally made it to the store yesterday. We had no food in our house when we got home from Seattle. I picked up blueberries because they were on sale and sweet corn because it looked good. I made one of my favorite summer salads for dinner-Blueberry Corn Salad. It hit the spot!

This salad is light and refreshing. I love the pop of color and juiciness the blueberries add to the corn salad. The cucumbers also add a nice crunch. The salad is full of flavor thanks to the cilantro, jalapeño, red onion, and honey lime dressing.

Celebrate summer by making this Blueberry Corn Salad. It is simple to make and it can be made in advance which makes it perfect for summer bbq’s, picnics, and pool parties.

We have some salad leftover from dinner so I might sneak outside and lay on that blanket with a bowl of Blueberry Corn Salad. Sounds like a great lunch to me. And I know Caleb will appreciate being outside.

Blueberry Corn Salad

Yield: Serves 6-8

Simple summer salad with blueberries, sweet corn, cucumbers, cilantro, jalapeño, red onion, and a honey lime dressing.


6 ears fresh sweet corn, husked
1 cup fresh blueberries
1 cucumber, sliced
1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely chopped
2 tablespoons lime juice
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon honey
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper


1. In a large pot, bring water to boiling. Add corn. Cook for 5 minutes, or until tender. When cool enough to handle, cut corn from the cobs. Discard cobs.

2. In a large serving bowl, combine corn, blueberries, cucumber, red onion, cilantro, and jalapeno. To make the dressing, whisk together lime juice, oil, honey, cumin, salt, and pepper. Pour dressing over salad and stir until combined. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Note-you can make this salad a day in advance. It keeps well.

    I’m not sure if this salad would be suited for everyone, but we’re adventurous eaters and love to try new things, so I would definitely make this. I’ve had blueberry salsa before and that was light and flavorful.

    There is an asterisk after the jalapeno pepper but no further comment. Why?

      I deleted it! No reason, just a typo:) I guess you could leave it out if you don’t like spicy!

    This is BEAUTIFUL!!

    I know what you mean about catching up…I had to do grocery shopping yesterday and spent the whole day running!!

    A big bowl of this might give me the burst of energy I need.

    wonderful idea! We are addicted to blueberries over here! Can’t wait to see you in a few more weeks!

      I can’t believe it is only a few more weeks! Can’t wait to see you!

  13. Russell van Kraayenburg — June 13, 2012 @ 9:21 am

    Looks like we’re on the same page with blueberries! I thought I was the only one who liked to sneak blueberries into different recipes. This looks scrumptious!

  14. katie — June 13, 2012 @ 9:31 am

  16. kelley — June 13, 2012 @ 9:36 am

    I did the same thing yesterday. We had NO food in the house which is funny since Pete was here with the boys. I think they must have gone out for every meal! This looks like it would be the perfect salad for laying on a blanket in the sun!

  17. What a wonderful and colorful salad. I would never thought of pairing corn and blueberries. Great idea!

  18. Lauren — June 13, 2012 @ 10:00 am

    I just bought a huge 3 pound container of blueberries at costco. Perfect timing :) {Also, I’m so glad I got to meet you, Josh & Caleb this last weekend! You are wonderful!}

    • Two Peas replied: — June 13th, 2012 @ 10:29 am

      You are wonderful too! So glad we were able to hangout!

  19. Wow! That is just bursting with summer produce! I can’t wait until both blueberries and corn are available in Southern California! Can’t wait to try it!

    I was already on board, and then I saw the honey lime dressing and was pushed right over the top.

  29. Corrie Anne — June 13, 2012 @ 12:08 pm

    That’s a fascinating combo!!! I’m curious to try it!

  30. I don’t think I would have thought to add berries to a salad like this, but it looks really refreshing. Perfect for a picnic! Love it!

  31. Cara — June 13, 2012 @ 12:54 pm

    Maria this sounds incredible! Not surprising because it reminds me of a strawberry corn salad I have on my blog from a couple summers ago. I will have to try it with blueberries!

  32. Emilie — June 13, 2012 @ 1:00 pm

    this looks so delicious and refreshing!

  33. Ok, this is not a combo I would ever think of!! But, it looks so pretty and delicious!
