I was born in New Jersey, land of the best corn on the cob ever. You know it isn’t called the Garden State for nothing. New Jersey always grew the best and sweetest corn on the cob and tomatoes. Luckily Georgia and Florida have come along way with corn on the cob, so I can still enjoy my favorite summer vegetable. I don’t think there is anything that makes me feel more like a kid then biting into a juicy, sweet ear of corn with butter dripping down my chin and the occasional squirt of corn milk. Yummy!

While we tend to eat corn right off the cob the most, occasionally I like to do something a little more special with it. On my flight back from Singapore from my Father in Law’s funeral, I was served an edamame and grilled corn salad. It was light and refreshing, so I thought about re-creating it for a recipe for this blog. Plus it is corn season. Hello! Do I really need an excuse to eat corn?

I always thought of corn as being very “American”, but when we were in Europe this summer I saw a lot of corn growing. I had no idea. Consequently, I love when traveling opens my eyes to something I hadn’t known before. In fact I was even more surprised to see it on a plane to Singapore. You think I would know better by now then to presume something about a different country or culture.

Any hoo, this recipe is a little bit of a take-off of the edamame and corn salad I had on the place. Since I was on my way to Singapore, I had the inspiration for an Asian type dressing. The best thing about this dressing, there is no need to make it in a separate bowl. Just dump all the ingredients in one bowl and stir. That is one less bowl to wash. What joy! I added a little avocado for my daughter and red onion for color and crunch. It makes a very pretty salad with subtle flavors that are refreshing and light. You can grill the corn or place it on top of your gas burner on the stove. A grill pan would work too. See it really is that easy.
