Fresh Corn Salad Recipe Uses Corn on the Cob to Make BEST Corn Salad

Fresh Corn Salad recipe is one of my summer pleasures.  If you only use corn on the cob just to eat, you are missing using sweet summer corn as an ingredient in easy corn salad recipes.  There’s nothing like fresh corn on the cob to use in recipes.  Honestly, there isn’t much to it and really is quick to do. Just get a sharp or serrated knife and scrape the corn off the cob lengthwise. However, my daughter just sent me this link to this corn stripper and this will be my favorite corn gadget.  One of my favorite summer salads could be called an avocado salad recipe because you know how I love avocados.  So, of course they are included! However, this refreshing Crisp Summer Salad from Gulf Coast Favorites cookbook features  all your favorite garden ingredients.
