It is still one of my favorite side dishes and I adore all of the variations on this simple summer food. Love love love - the saltwater corn here on the blog! This past weekend we were invited to a bbq and asked to bring a salad. With the summer months upon us I instantly thought corn on the cob, . . .
A few years back some friends brought this tasty asparagus salad to a BBQ. This salad was gone in 2 seconds flat. Everyone asked for the recipe, including me, and it has been a staple ever since. Perfect For A BBQ This dish is PERFECT for summer evening dinners. You will love this along with any sort of grilled meat. We had this with steaks and corn on the cob the other night with my family.
