Grilled Corn and Red Pepper Salad

Somehow Kenya ended up "helping" me buy way more ears of corn at the farmers' market last weekend than we could possibly eat in 7 days. It's amazing how quickly the items in our cart can grow when my two little helpers get extra excited about what's at the market. Between all that extra sweet corn and the ready-to-be-picked red bell peppers and parsley in our garden, I decided to make this salad. It's bright in color and has a ton of texture, so it's as visually beautiful as it is delicious.

This grilled corn and red pepper salad just says summer to me, so the time to make some is now!

    I'm going to try this the next time I buy corn! I'm guessing if I substitute some diced avocado for the cheese, it will be a pretty good vegan version.

    This looks so good! I think it would be really tasty with some lime juice or apple cider vinegar as the acid, too. Maybe I'll just have to try three different versions!

    I love your recipes and ideas. You've been quite the inspiration for me to create my own blog ( of my recipes and life with my toddler! Now if only he'd stop being so picky and eat like your kids do...

      I've been reading a liltte, and the consensus is that all the doctors tell you not to eat it, but if it's passed the FDA, it is probably pasteurized and OK. You know doctors CYA!
