Mexican Roasted Corn Salad with Avocado (Esquites)

Mexican Roasted Corn Salad by Terry Hope Romero from Salad Samari

I could eat a different corn salad every night (corn is the perfect hearty addition to summertime salads), but my obsession started here: a deluxe vegan esquites, the queen of creamy roasted corn salads. Unlike most corn salads, this is best eaten when the corn is still warm from roasting, so prep all of the veggies (and the dressing, but you knew that already!) first, so all that’s required is toasted hot corn for a mouthwatering treat.

Potato and Grilled Corn Salad with Fresh Dill

Potato and Corn Salad

When summer is in full swing, it means picnics, family bike rides, BBQs, and lots of dinners on the patio. A popular summer salad which I was never really able to get behind is the traditional potato salad. I just find it too heavy with mayo and much too creamy for my liking. I do, however, love the idea of grilled corn, fresh dill, and tangy mustard in my potato salad, and that’s just what I did to recreate this classic dish. This recipe makes for excellent leftovers, and it’s so easy to whip up to bring along to a lunch or dinner party. It won’t leave anyone feeling weighed down by heavy mayo, and you can proudly say it’s vegan! Recipe and photos contributed by Sophia Zergiotis of Love and Lentils.

Edamame-Sriracha Succotash

EDAMAME-SRIRACHA SUCCOTASH randy clemens

To chill or not to chill: that is the question. While it’s true that succotash is delightful served warm, I’ve always enjoyed it served cold as a refreshing salad from summer through late fall. For me, it offers the brightest taste of the season, bursting with the crisp, sweet splendor of fresh, raw corn kernels.

Coconut Creamed Corn

Coconut creamed corn

The flavors of corn and coconut are deliciously compatible. This is a wonderful way to use fresh corn when it’s abundant, and the novelty of having it on the cob or roasted has worn off. The most time-consuming part of this, by which I mean all of 5 minutes or less, is stripping the corn kernels off the cob.
