{Fresh Corn Salad with Herbs}

This week was busy!  And I was a little sluggish this week after a wonderful long relaxing weekend! With my busy schedule this week I feel like I haven't even thought about cooking!  Queue leftovers, they are such a wonderful thing, and perfect for busy weekday nights!  I love when I have healthy leftovers in the fridge, it makes eating healthy so much easier!

I made this delicious Fresh Corn and Herb salad on Monday night to go along with our grilled salmon, recipe here.   And this very salad has been eaten for dinner and lunch the past few days as I run around!  But this salad is so darn delicious that  I am not even mad about the fact that I have eaten it all week!  One thing I love about summer is fresh sweet corn, and this salad features it!  I have cut the corn right off the cob,   combined it with some fresh lightly sautéed veggies, a bit of butter and herbs and voila you have a great summer side salad!   Throw some grilled chicken on top of this salad and call it a meal, or eat it as a side with your favorite meat or vegetarian options!  I have even topped this salad with avocado in my lunch for work!  Enjoy!
