Fresh Corn Salad with Stone Fruit and Herbs
In this interpretation of fattoush--a Lebanese salad with veggies and toasted flatbread--corn brings sweet crunch to ripe nectarines, herbs, and a bright vinaigrette.
Corn varieties grown these days are slower at turning their sugars into starch after harvest, which means you don't have to rush them into the cooking pot anymore. In fact, you can even eat the corn raw, as in this simple, super-fresh salad flecked with bracing herbs and shot through with juicy peaches. Just be sure to choose the freshest, most plump ears you can find.
