Raw Corn Salad (serves 6)
Raw Corn Salad
This super-quick salad is bursting with summer flavors. The raw corn is incredibly sweet and crispy and perfectly complements the bell pepper and vidalia onion. Just a splash of balsamic vinegar brings it all together. Makes a great entrance to a cookout. ~ Glyn and Will
