    While I love traveling and experiencing new foods, I’m not a lady of leisure and can’t spend my days jet setting. Instead, I experience some of the recipes I’d love to taste via the “Reader’s Favorite Restaurant Recipes” section of Bon Appetit magazine.

    Last year I tore out Grilled Hanger Steak with Cucumber Salad from Jujube in North Carolina. I came across it again while throwing a dinner party and decided that I could use the salad portion and ditch the steak. Something I rarely say… I love steak!

    The original Grilled Corn Salad only calls for cool cucumbers and red onion and adds the crunch and salt of peanuts, but for my purposes, I omitted them. Instead adding tomatoes and charred farmers market corn. All the elements of summer in one bowl.

    Grilled Corn Salad has the traditional tang of vinegar, but two special ingredients. A bit of sweet and heat from chili sauce and acidity from lime. Everyone loves it, but no one can ever guess the ingredients!

    This summer salad is ideal for cookouts and as a side dish to grilled dishes like Grilled Lemon Chicken. It is an easy make ahead side dish recipe.
