Obsessing Over Corn

Corn season has arrived, and boy is it good!
8 ears of sweet sweet sweet corn for $2?! Um, yes please!

When I buy fresh corn, I prefer to eat it raw, sliced straight from the cob. It's crunchy and fresh, in no need of any cooking. I'll save that for frozen corn out of season. Lately I've been whipping up this salad that I can't get enough of. I typically buy 2-3 ears of corn at a time since there's only two of us. But at the rate I'm consuming this dish I might go for that full 8 next week.

Fresh Corn Salad

2 ears of corn, kernels sliced from the cob
2 Tbs red onion, minced
3 Tbs fresh basil, minced
2 Tbs feta cheese, finely crumbled
a tiny drizzle of olive oil
salt to taste

Place all ingredients in a bowl and mix together well. This dish keeps nicely in the refrigerator for 2-3 days.

Sounds fantastic. I am obsessed as well although I cannot say I eat it raw.

YUM! I had something similar the other day with asparagus, corn & feta. So so good! I hope summer produce never ends!
