Taste Tested: Corn, Zucchini and Dill Salad

Ear ye, ear ye! This week, Julia stalked up on seasonal produce to make a dead simple salad that screams summer.

“I’ve had my eye on this Food52 recipe for over a year, but last weekend I was finally able to take it from the vision board to the cutting board.  No offense to the corn or zucchini, but the awesome (see also: ewesome?) addition of goat cheese from Gordon’s Goat Dairy in Huron really took this salad up a notch. It’s also a great option for combatting the dreaded Sad Desk Lunch – so long as you squirrel some away before your barbecue guests arrive.”

Corn, Zucchini Salad

Serves 8
The OG recipe called for cucumbers, but I swapped in zucchini. And for my next trick, I'll add cubed baby potatoes.

For the salad
  1. 3 ears of Ontario corn, uncooked
  2. 1 Ontario sweet pepper, cubed
  3. 2 medium Ontario zucchini, cubed
  4. 1 Ontario shallot, thinly sliced
  5. 10 sprigs of Ontario dill (or more if you're kind of a big dill)
  6. 4 ounces Ontario goat feta
  7. Maldon salt and cracked pepper, to taste
For the dressing
  1. 1 cup runny (read: not Greek) Ontario yogurt
  2. 1 TBSP red wine vinegar
  3. 1 clove Ontario garlic, minced
  4. 1/4 cup olive oil (we love that Country Meadows' presses theirs here in Ontario)
Instructions
  1. Over a large bowl, take kernels off cobs. Add sweet pepper, zucchini, shallot and dill.
  2. In a smaller bowl (or better yet, a mason jar), combine dressing ingredients and whisk/shake well.
  3. When ready to serve, pour dressing over salad and toss well to combine.
  4. Crumble with goat feta and season to taste.
