OKLAHOMA CITY–Even though the calendar doesn’t say Summer has officially arrived, we feel like it has when grocery stores receive fresh corn.
This is a fantastic salad which makes use of fresh corn, and our other garden favorites!
First, let’s talk corn.
If it is fresh and sweet, there is no need to cook it.
If it has been a few days since the corn was picked, or it is not perfectly ripe, the corn may be steamed briefly in the microwave.
Wrap the entire ear in a damp towel, place in microwave and cook on high power for about 4 minutes. The husk and silk will peel right off!
