Summer salads don’t get much easier or prettier than this one. Bursting with summer veggies, Zucchini, Corn, and Sweet Onion Salad with Lemon Vinaigrette is fresh, light, and delicious!
For the salad:
2 medium zucchinis, very thinly sliced
½ medium sweet onion, very thinly sliced
2 ears raw sweet corn, kernels cut off
¼ cup loosely packed mint, chopped
For the dressing:
¼ cup fresh lemon juice
¼ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon honey
⅓ cup extra virgin olive oil
- Arrange half the zucchini slices on a large platter. Top with half the sliced onion and half the corn kernels. Drizzle 4 tablespoons dressing over top and sprinkle with half the mint.
- Arrange the remaining zucchini slices and onion slices on top of the zucchini/onion/corn base. Sprinkle the remaining corn kernels, then drizzle 4 additional tablespoons dressing over top. Sprinkle with the remaining mint.
- Let sit 5 minutes for the flavors to absorb and the zucchini to soften. Serve immediately.
Use any leftover vinaigrette to dress greens for a simple salad.
Here are some options for adapting the recipe for resistant eaters:
- Deconstruct the salad and arrange some sliced zucchini and sweet corn on his or her plate. Serve the dressing on the side for dipping.
