Ingredients:

Creamy Corn Salad

https://i0.wp.com/static.tastykitchen.com/recipes/files/2012/06/Creamy-Corn-Salad-11-410x307.jpg Most week-days i don’t have much time to prepare a grand lunch for myself,¬† so when i found this recipe on Tasty Kitchen i was like, wow! NOW we’re in business!!!¬† ūüėČ

~Super easy, and you can whip it up in no time flat for the perfect light summer lunch or side dish for your grill-out.  ~

Ingredients:

  • ¬ľ cups Mayonnaise
  • ¬ľ cups Milk
  • 2 Tablespoons¬†Lemon Juice
  • 2 Tablespoons¬†Chopped Red Onion
  • 2 cups¬†Cooked Corn Kernels (I prefer the frozen kind that you can defrost/cook really fast)
  • 2 Tablespoons¬†Fresh Parsley, Chopped (cilantro, or a touch of basil is also yummy)
  • ¬ľ cups¬†Reduced-fat Feta Cheese, Crumbled
  • Salt And Pepper, to taste

Directions: In a bowl, mix together the mayonnaise, milk, lemon juice and red onion. Add the corn kernels and herbs. Fold in the crumbled cheese and season to taste.

This salad tastes best at room temperature but keep any leftovers refrigerated. Note that if you use canned or frozen corn kernels, roast them briefly in a 400¬ļF oven until they develop a little color.

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as i have!¬† ūüôā

Happy Cooking  & Bon Appétit!
