Now is the time of year when farmers market and grocery store displays are overflowing with peak summer corn. If you’re looking for a new way to use this versatile summer favorite, check out one of these options from our archives:
Creamed Summer Corn. This dish is flavorful, but nothing overpowers the taste of the fresh, sweet corn. Also, check out the tip for removing silk from a bowl of corn kernels — I can attest that it really works.
Corn, Radish, Tomato and Tortilla Chip Salad. The only real “cooking” to do here is microwaving the corn, which won’t heat up your kitchen on a sizzling day. Think nachos, but lighter and brighter.

Spicy, Sweet and Sour Corn Relish. Make a batch of this updated version of chowchow and enjoy it on everything from grilled meat to tacos. It will last a week in the refrigerator.
Petite Pasta Salad With Corn, Tomatoes and Feta. Corn is paired with its fellow summer staple, tomato, in a simple but satisfying pasta salad. Pack this one up for lunch or your next outdoor excursion.
