But oh my gosh you guys this salad was out of control delicious. I had seconds and thirds and maybe even tried to lick the  dressing off the bottom of the bowl. I’m legitimately proud of myself for sharing this with anyone else.

The sweetness of the corn and blueberries was cut perfectly by the spiciness of the jalapenos. The cucumbers were super refreshing and the honey, lime and cumin dressing added a just little warmth. This salad is basically the definition of summer.

Make this for you next party, or just keep in it your fridge and eat it for your next 6 meals in a row (you will not get sick of it, I swear). This summer salad is so unique and addicting, and will be a huge hit no mater what you do with it.

  • 1 jalapeno, diced, seeds removed

Dressing

How easy is that? (Love ya, Ina)
