Just in time for Father’s Day, July 4th and summer picnics and get-togethers, this Healthy Corn Salad is a combination of some of my favorite ingredients. I always tell my kids that summer corn tastes just like candy. This makes the perfect summer side dish served with chicken, steaks, pork and seafood. Corn is also very healthy as it’s a rich source of vitamins A, B, E and many minerals. Its high fiber content is good for digestion. The antioxidants present in corn act as a anti-carcinogen agents and can help prevent Alzheimer’s disease. Enjoy all summer long and if you’re making this in the winter, feel free to use frozen corn. Just thaw it, bring to room temperature and proceed with the instructions above.
My kid’s great grandmother, Dedee, made the best potato salad we have ever had. This recipe for Lightened Up Potato Salad is the closest version to hers which is perfect for summertime, picnics, and Memorial Day weekend. This recipe is slightly lighter than hers, since it uses nonfat greek yogurt, reduced-fat mayonnaise, fresh dill, celery and red onion. I know you will love it as much as we do!
