Whipped-Cream Corn Salad


What's better than fresh corn straight off the cob? Fresh corn that's dressed with a light and fluffy cloud of whipped cream. Our Whipped-Cream Corn Salad is unlike any corn side dish you've ever had, but it's soon to be a favorite. Only four ingredients are needed (fresh corn kernels, kosher salt, black pepper, and heavy cream) but we won't be put out if you decide to garnish with a few chopped chives for added color. Serve corn salad along with any one of your favorite Southern specialties like fried chicken, pork chops, or fall-off-the-bone ribs for the ultimate dinnertime spread. If you thought there couldn't possibly be yet another way to enjoy the season's golden kernels, think again. Our Whipped-Cream Corn Salad might come together in less than 30 minutes, but it's destined to become your new favorite side dish for the long haul. Whipped-Cream Corn Salad is a quick, no-cook side dish that highlights one of summer's favorite bounty's.
