Feta Corn Salad

Jump to Recipe

Simple sides are always my favorite. And bonus points if they don’t have to be cooked! While this Feta Corn Salad is amazing for summertime – it keeps in a cooler really well – it is actually good year round! It goes so good with a burger (check out my latest cookbook Burgers on a Weeknight!), a steak, a whole roasted chicken. It has a mild but yummy flavor that gives it a versatile array of combinations.

For the dressing, I opted for Red Wine Vinegar. It has that hint of sweetness that goes great with the corn. If you don’t have any red wine vinegar you could use apple cider vinegar instead – but I would advise against using plain white vinegar. That will be too pungent and over power the corn. I also used plain feta cheese crumbles not the marinated style. The marinated style tends to be a little more Mediterranean in flavor, which isn’t exactly what you are going for here.

I served this with my Dill Shrimp Sandwich, for my youngest son’s birthday this year. He absolutely loved it! They balanced each other really well. They also have several of the same ingredients so prep was pretty easy for both of them! I think this salad would also go really well with a nice steak and loaded baked potato.

I am a lot of things – wife, mother, daughter, sister, niece, friend, business owner, volunteer, and a home chef. I have lived in the Pacific Northwest for most of my adult life and plan to stay forever – while traveling a lot. I am currently running a General Contracting business with my husband out of our home. Between us we have 6 kids in our blended family, 4 of which live with us full-time. We are a highly active family during the week – sports, bands, dance classes – as well as on the weekend – camping, hiking, car shows, and concerts. We like to go go go, but when it comes to dinnertime, we mostly like to dine-in! I love to create things with my hands and have probably tried almost every craft out there at least once or twice. Cooking is a huge part of my life. No matter what anyone says – you can taste the difference in the food if it was made with love. Some of the simplest meals can be elevated so much when they are cooked with care. Pouring love into the meals I create brings a feeling of fulfillment and satisfaction, not only to me, but to the people I care about.
