So we are switching gears around here once again.

We had about a week and a half of great fall weather and then BAM! here comes the heat again.  It's been in the mid nineties all week long.  I can't keep up.  I've been cooking some great fall comfy food and now it's too hot to cook inside.  What's a girl to do?  

Get out and grill again!  I would call this Indian Summer for sure.  This is typical of Southern California but mother nature was really sneaky this year, giving us that teaser of really cool weather.

So when I think of Indian Summer I think of corn.  We LOVE corn and use it some many ways.  Since we are grilling our main dish (Spicy Apricot Glazed Chicken - recipe to come) I wanted to please MGG with a salad.  One mixed with fresh corn kernels.  Yum!


INDIAN SUMMER FRESH CORN SALAD

MGG loves a good spinach salad so why not mix in some corn, along with the typical tomato and cucumber.  Dress it with a light citrus vinaigrette and you have one heck of a side dish.  Perfect for an Indian Summer, or anytime.

NOTE:  I often freeze summer corn so we can have fresh corn on the cob during the winter!
