Cooling salads are just the thing for Summer picnics and cookouts!  It is nice also when they are easy to make and don’t heat up the oven but still taste amazing.  The recipe I am sharing with you today is all of those things!  It is a Sweet Corn and Cherry Salad with fresh mint, and it may sound like an out of the ordinary combination but it is delicious!  It comes together in 15 minutes or less, and it would be the perfect thing to serve alongside your protein for Father’s Day!  It goes well with just about anything grilled.  Cherries and corn have just come into season so this is the time of year to make it!  Be sure to buy organic sweet corn and cherries, Fresh and Natural Foods is a great place to find them!
