Recipe Notes

Cook’s Tips and Tricks: If there is fresh corn off the cob at hand, add it without so much as blanching. The salad ingredients can rest for up to an hour in the fridge before assembling at the last minute. Freezing the salad bowls and forks for an hour lets you carry the composed dishes outdoors and not have them “wilt” in the summer heat so quickly.
