This Bacon Blue Cheese Corn Salad is the most delicious corn salad ever! Fresh sweet corn combined with crispy bacon, cherry tomatoes, crumbled blue cheese, green onions, and a light vinaigrette. Perfect for summer picnics, cookouts, or pot lucks!
Can you believe that summer is almost half over? Are you living it up? Soaking it in? Doing everything you wanted to do? To be honest, I’m flipping back and forth between feeling like it’s flying by….and wondering if it will ever end!!?? Which, I’m sure, has everything to do with our summer schedule.
Yes, our summer schedule is pretty much me being home with the kids or me being in the car….with the kids. In other words, I’m pretty much ALWAYS with the kids, and if I had to guess? That’s the part that has me wondering When. This. Will. End. And the part that feels like it’s flying by? Well, that’s all the summer fun I wish I was having.
The good news? There’s still time to turn things around. And have some of the fun that summer was made for! The other good news? I already have a jump start….because I have half-made plans with so many friends. Plans for cookouts and hangouts and nights out…both with and without kids. And if I had to guess, this Bacon Blue Cheese Corn Salad will be part of more than one of them.
I LOVE fresh sweet corn in summer, and I couldn’t resist buying way too much of it last time I was at the grocery store. And as soon as I had it in my hands? I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it. There’s something about the sweet crunch of corn that’s the perfect pairing for bacon….and where there’s bacon….there should always be blue cheese.
This Bacon Blue Cheese Corn Salad is the perfect side dish for any meal. It travels well, stores well, and gets gobbled up quickly. Ideal for all those second half of summer plans I need to get on my calendar!
So friends? If I haven’t seen you in a while, get your taste buds ready for this deliciousness. Because I can guarantee there’s some Bacon Blue Cheese Corn Salad in your near future. With wine, of course. Because something needs to get us through the rest of summer break! AmIright?
