Blueberry Corn Salad with Honey Lime Vinaigrette brings together all the best summer flavors in a simple, picnic ready salad that is packed with flavor and full of bright, fresh fruits and vegetables.

Growing up in New England, we couldn’t wait for corn season to hit when we could find the most delicious, sweet corn at virtually every roadside farm stand. We’d stop on our way home, jump out to grab at least a dozen ears, and usually beg for a few pieces of homemade fudge. Then we would stuff our payment into a little wooden, honor system box, jump back in the car, and argue about who would be in charge of shucking it once we were home.

This past week, when I saw the first of the summer corn popping up at the market, I couldn’t wait to get it home and throw it on the grill. In my excitement, I bought about 6 ears too many, but ended up using the leftover grilled corn to make this amazing Blueberry Corn Salad and we couldn’t have loved it more.

The combination of the grilled corn with sweet blueberries, cilantro, red onion, and jalapeno just works. Plus the addition of the honey lime dressing – it’s exactly what you want to eat all summer long.  Perfect for picnics, summer gatherings, or an easy weeknight side dish. Plus the leftovers make a great addition to salads, sandwiches, and as a salsa for grilled meats.

Here are tips for making this Blueberry Corn Salad:

  • Although I love the taste of grilled corn in this recipe, you could also use boiled corn or even use raw corn in the salad if it’s especially sweet. And if you can’t find any good fresh corn, defrosted frozen corn can be a good stand in.
  • Blueberries are my favorite fruit to include in this salad, but it’s also delicious with peaches or mango. And although I haven’t tried it yet, I imagine strawberries would work as well.
  • Since I like a touch of spice in everything, I use a jalapeno in the salad but you could easily leave it out or serve it on the side.
  • For a vegan version of the salad, use agave instead of honey in the dressing.
  • To switch up the flavors, consider using fresh basil instead of the cilantro. It adds a really delicious herbal element to the salad that’s hard to beat

Blueberry Corn Salad with Honey Lime Vinaigrette

Looking for more summer salads?

Here are some tools I used when preparing this recipe:

  • Honey: Since honey is a main flavor is this recipe, the honey you use will make a big difference. Ideally you want a natural honey that hasn't been overly filtered and doesn't have a lot other added sweeteners (unfortunately I am looking at you honey bear). For cooking meats, I tend to reach for orange blossom honey since I love the citrus undertones but any delicious, natural honey will work.
  • Citrus juicer: I can't live without my citrus juicer since we put lemon and lime on almost everything. I use this handheld version and its the first one that has held up for years after constant use.
  • Salad bowls: When I am making a salad for a quick meal at home, I usually reach for these simple glass bowls for both making the salad and serving it. I love that them come with an optional lid so I can just toss the leftovers in the fridge after the meal. For fancier meals or when we have friends over, this is my go-to salad bowl.
