Recipe Description

This Charred Corn Salad with Grilled Summer Vegetables is a mid-summer veggie salad with charred corn, roasted red peppers, grilled squash, eggplant, and cherry tomatoes.  YUM, what a great way to enjoy the bounty of a mid-summer garden.  Serve this salad with some pizza made from my homemade pizza doughI am looking at all that goodness so many possible ways to eat, cook, and enjoy this bountiful harvest today. All the fresh veggies are why I love summer so much. Well, it could also be because it is warm. I love warm sunny days. These are the days when I can walk through my flower gardens barefoot enjoying the scent of the lilies and flowers. I digress with my daydreams.
