Tasty, simple and inexpensive salad to make during the spring/summer when all the seasonal veggies are cheap. Nice side to have on a hot day. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Even more amazing the next day.I used fresh corn on the cob & microwaved them 4 min. a piece & cut off the ends & shook them right out clean.Now you can skip the cooking in olive oil step.

I used fresh corn and it's a very good summer salad, but next time I will make extra dressing as I found it a little bland.
