Do you like to cook? I do, especially in the summertime when fresh vegetables and herbs are more plentiful. Sometimes I try to make dishes that don’t require me to turn on the oven. Here in the South it gets pretty hot, especially as the summer progresses. There’s no need to swelter outside of the house as well as inside in my opinion. Typically for supper Honey Bee grills out fish, chicken or shellfish and I make the accompanying side dishes. This past week I was feeling culinarily creative in the kitchen and I came up with a delectable that I call creamy corn salad.
Creamy Corn Salad – It’s Delicious!
In addition to not wanting to be hot in the kitchen, I don’t want to spend a lot of time having to cook and prepare dishes. For me summertime food needs to be easy, breezy and quick. I also like things that I can prepare ahead of time earlier in the day.
Doesn’t this look delicious? Trust me, it really is.
I don’t know what possessed me to try out a brand new original recipe when we were having company come over. Thankfully everyone really liked the creamy corn salad and even asked for seconds!
Smokey bacon really adds great flavor to the creamy goodness too!
This dish will definitely be served this weekend for Father’s Day. I know all of the dad’s in our family will just love it!
The longer this salad sits in the fridge, the better it tastes. Unfortunately the leftovers never last very long!
Feel free to use fresh corn too. Again…I didn’t want to spend that long in the kitchen 🙂
Let me know what you think. This recipe is a keeper for us and will definitely be made several times this summer.
Have a great weekend friends.
