Corn and Blueberry Salad

We are having too much fun at our house this week.

Clark is home from his European Adventures.

Logan is home for a visit before he starts his grown up, real job on Monday.

Cali is packing up to head back to college and Tessa has her schedule and is ready to start her Junior year of high school.

Today’s post will be a quick one.  I wanted to share this fun and yummy recipe with you because now is the time of year to make it – when you can get farm fresh corn and blueberries – both at the same time.

You may think the combination of corn and blueberries is a bit strange, but trust me, it is a delightful one.  Not only does it taste good but it is so PRETTY!!  Add a little red pepper and it makes it even PRETTIER!!

My friend April first introduced us to the combination several years ago and each year I look forward to August when corn and blueberries are available at the farmer’s market.

So trust me, corn and blueberries make a great combo!

Well I’m off for a little more family fun before everyone heads back to school.  Had the yearly family photo taken today – can’t wait to share more about that whole event next week and a yummy caramel cake I made to celebrate Jim’s birthday!!

    Looks super yummy… can’t wait to try it out!

    P.S. every time I make the lemon chicken (got the recipe from your blog) people rant and rave and tell me how much they love it and insist on passing along the recipe to them.

    :)

    Ok I am going to give it a try. I admit I was skeptical of the combination..then I thought to myself WHY??? If she says it is terrific it MUST be! I have never commented, but I use many of your recipes and people always rave about every single one. Especially the white chocolate cinnamon toast pretzels and the chocolate chip cookie dough pie. I have taken both of those goodies to many events/activities and get rave reviews. SO.. I will get this salad made ASAP and maybe it will become a favorite too! Thanks for all your helpful, yummy recipes!

    It looks absolutely delightful. You are righ-sooo PRETTY. I LOVE colourful interesting, crunchy and flavourful salads (ice-burg and ranch is NOT a salad ;)

    Thanks for the recipe and your photography is gorgeous. Bookmarking this one.

    Sorry that just doesn’t seem like the best combination . . . but maybe I will have to try since everything else you make is so delish! My friend made the Lemon Dreams for a wedding (I gave her the recipe from your blog!) and they were so good.

    let me see, except for the red peppers I think I have most of this on hand (even out of the garden). Wonder what the boys will think… they love corn and they love blueberries… what a combo.

    Leigh Ann,

    Don’t feel bad. When I stumbled onto your web site I actually subscribed, just so I could try this salad! (My computer is down and I am borrowing one occassionally until mine gets back fom the geek squad and Best Buy! Almost 6 weeks and counting. ;-(

    I have Blueberies and corn, but just haven’t made it yet. I was going to write AFTER I tried the recipe and loved it. (I’m just guessing now, but I do love to try out new recipes and delight my family with unusual fares.) BUt with this message I thought I ditch that and write sooner. Thanks for the inspiration.

    It is very colorful and sounds interesting. It could be a unique blend of flavors. I will have to take your word for it and try it out.

  10. Joyce says

    I shared the recipe with two friends. They then past it on and so on and so on.

    I made it on Saturday and love it. I also posted a picture on FB.

    Sorry that you felt bad about no comments being made.

    I’ve never heard of this recipe before. It’s different
    and looks great. I want to try it soon. Thanks for offering the recipe on your blog Leigh Anne!

    I thought I might take this and a green salad to a birthday dinner I am going to and taking a couple of dishes to this coming Labor Day weekend. I think it sounds great and looks pretty.

    Hi, Leigh Anne. I made this salad last night. Thanks for telling me not to cook the corn. My husband thought I was nuts. Neither of us have ever had raw corn from the cobb and of course the combination of everything sounds strange.

    But it really is a beautiful dish and we both enjoyed it last night. I just had some leftovers for lunch today and it tasted fabulous! I think it should probably sit for 3 or 4 hours – or maybe even overnight, before serving for best results anyway.

    Thanks so much. I can’t wait to share it with the rest of our family – perfect dish for Labor Day weekend get togethers.

    Oh my goodness, Leigh Anne! I was getting on to tell you that I tried this tonight and my family LOVED it – even my 11-year-old! BUT…I just read the post above from Jacquie! I cooked the corn!!!! When I read the recipe, I was wondering why you didn’t mention cooking the corn, but I’ve never even heard of eating uncooked corn, so I didn’t even consider that you wouldn’t cook it! Guess I need to try this again and NOT cook the corn! Oh, well! Now you know…it’s good with cooked OR uncooked corn!

  16. says

    OK, seriously? I made this for dinner at our friends’ house tonight and don’t know if any of it is actually going to make it there. OMG, it is soooo good. Go. Make. This. Salad. Now.

  17. Laura Brandenburg says

    I made this and cooked the corn before I re-read and saw it wasn’t necessary. Also added grapes — we had some super-sweet organic grapes this week that deserved better than snack status. Very yummy indeed!

  18. Cathy O says

    I just made this tonight and wow, it is so refreshing and yummy. I wish I had found this at the beginning of blue berry season. My husband and son were hesitant to try it, but they did and took seconds and thirds of it. I have enough left my lunch tomorrow.
