A summer salad that is sure to please

By  |  0 Comments

Growing up in Indiana, I’ve always had a love for fresh, sweet Indiana corn. In my opinion there is nothing like it. At the start of the season, I found myself in the kitchen experimenting with my favorite local vegetable, and my favorite summer fruit: peaches. When paired together with a little honey and a little lime, it is a match made in heaven.  Have a little fun and whip up this summer salad featuring two dynamic co-stars, Peach and Corn. I think you’ll be surprised at how well they go together. Good eats!
