Just in time for Father’s Day, July 4th and summer picnics and get-togethers, this Healthy Corn Salad is a combination of some of my favorite ingredients. I always tell my kids that summer corn tastes just like candy. This makes the perfect summer side dish served with chicken, steaks, pork and seafood.
