There is nothing, I mean nothing, better than fresh farmers market corn. Okay maybe a great bowl of guacamole is better but nonetheless fresh corn at the peak of its season is amazing. Its sweet and crunchy and works really well with lots of different proteins. I made this Corn and Roasted Red Pepper Salad this past weekend for a big dinner party I did. It was served with grilled chicken and it was a total hit! Not only did it have fresh farmers market corn but also, roasted red peppers, sun dried tomatoes, basil, parsley and little buffalo mozzarella balls. It was delish! I wanted to lick the bowl, but I was working, and I don’t think everyone wanted to see their chef licking the dishes. I dunno. Just a thought.

This is also great the next day if you happen to have any leftovers. The flavors are even more bold once they have been sitting in the fridge hanging out for a bit. This is my go-to summer side dish recipe. I love the simplicity, healthfulness and the freshness that it provides.

    I’m catering a party this weekend and was thinking of stuffing little tiny squashes with a corn and red pepper mixture. I love the idea of the tiny mozzarella balls in there!

    I see variations of this salad frequently but have never actually made it. Now might just be the time! I have basil and chili peppers in my garden. Now will have to go and get some corn from the farmers market! Yum!

    Gaby, this is beautiful! I love the idea of serving it with grilled chicken, but I bet it would also be great on fish. Great job, and thanks for sharing the recipe with us!

    Gaby, I’m so behind in my Google Reader, it isn’t funny! But I’m trying to catch up and saw your corn post – it looks great! We both posted a sweet corn recipe! Here in Michigan, the sweet corn season goes so fast, you feel like you want to eat it every night while you can. I love your recipe – it uses everything that’s in season right now. Plus mozzarella. Everything is better with mozzarella.
