This summer salad brings together great flavors, colors and textures. Sweet corn is a favorite at our house and it's even more fun when it comes from a friends farm. Plus, sweet corn is even better when in it's in season. Around here, eastern Kansas, that's usually July and early August. To get the most out of this salad, grab produce from the garden, the local farmers' market, or make sure it's in season. It is sure to be a hit at your next get together!

You'll love the crunch of the cabbage, creaminess of the avocado, saltiness of the feta and the burst of flavor with the sweet corn!
