Thai Corn Salad

Thai Corn Salad by

With the second half of summer almost here (I know, where did the summer go?!), fresh sweet corn will be popping up at every farmer’s market stall.  The really fresh sweet corn can be sliced off the cob and added straight into a salad.  The kernels are so crispy and juicy that cooking them just seems like a waste of precious summer time.

When sweet corn season begins, try tossing the raw kernels with diced cucumber & red onion, along with fresh herbs like Thai basil, cilantro, and mint. Then season with a mild flavored oil, lime juice, and sprinkles of our Thai Sriracha Sea Salt.

The combination makes a refreshing Thai Corn Salad to go with your grilled meat dishes.

Raw sweet corn kernels work well in this Thai Corn Salad, but if you’re cooking up our Thai Grilled Pork Chops, try grilling the sweet corn at the same time. With the lid closed, the smoke from the seasoned pork chops will impart a tantalizingly spicy, smoky, meaty flavor to the corn.
