Sauteed Corn Salad

Ahhhhhh, summer is almost over, you guys! But don’t fret, today I’m bringing you THE easiest and tastiest side dish that will help you celebrate summer while it’s still here: Sauteed Corn Salad. YUM.

Ryan (my husband) has a serious obsession with corn so we’ve been eating it a couple times a week all summer, and I’m totally fine with that. It’s an easy side for weeknight dinners and Ryan’s mastered grilling them to perfection. My only gripe is that corn is a bit messy to eat (I always feel like a bit of a caveman when eating it haha). And that’s why I decided to come up with a more ladylike way of eating it by simply cutting it off the cob beforehand 🙂

It’s the perfect dish to bring to a Labor Day BBQ since it celebrates the simple, fresh flavors of summer (lemon & Old Bay for the win!) and is so simple and fast (ready in 30 minutes or less!). Plus it’s relatively healthy too. OK fine…it’s healthy if you leave the butter out but why would you do that?! #YOLO In all seriousness if you want to keep it lighter or can’t have dairy you can sub in extra virgin olive oil or coconut oil for the butter. I can’t speak to its level of deliciousness since I haven’t tried either but I’m sure it has to be good since the star of this show is most definitely the corn!

Check out those gorgeous grill marks!

Once the corn is cool enough to handle, cut the kernels off the cob.

Melt the butter in a large saute pan over medium heat. Add the red onion and garlic, stir occasionally for a couple minutes. Then add the corn kernels, kosher salt, Old Bay, and black pepper. Stir to combine and let saute for 4-5 minutes.

Finally add the lemon juice and parsley, stir to combine. That’s it! Serve hot or at room temperature.
