Spicy Summer Succotash Salad

Author Notes: Made after a trip to our local farmers market - fresh & fab salad. You can add chicken or shrimp to make this a main dish! - wnaverywnavery

Food52 Review: So many wonderful flavors! The spicy jalapeno is balanced out well with the sweet corn and the honey. The vinaigrette and the cilantro make this a great cold salad, perfect for summer. I opted not to blanch the corn and it added an additional crispness. We really enjoyed this dish and will make it a regular part of our summer menus. – nannydebThe Editors
