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. This fresh corn salad is full of flavor thanks to the cilantro, jalapeño, red onion, and honey lime dressing.
Pro tip, you don’t need to cook the sweet corn. Remove the corn kernels from the cob with a sharp knife and add the corn to the salad raw. It is juicy, sweet, and SO good! If you can’t find fresh corn, you can use frozen or drained canned corn, but fresh really is best for this corn salad recipe. When corn is in season, I make this salad all of the time! I can’t get enough!
