Cool as a Cucumber (Salad)

A few weekends ago, we had family come for a long weekend. We spent the weekend grilling, playing in the pool and spending time with the new addition, our little sweet angel, Lillian. Since the baby was born, my husband has started cooking a lot more. That weekend, he made crab legs, bacon-wrapped hot dogs, wings and burgers on the grill. They were all so amazing.

He loves using our outdoor kitchen to grill up some of our favorite dishes. I love that he’s not heating up the house since it’s been so hot here in Florida. And even though our newborn baby loves to sit out on the porch with me in the heat and watch Daddy cook, we prefer the cool house and big ceiling fans.

To go along with all these grilled goodies, I’ve been making lots of different salads. My family loves salads, especially in the summer. I honestly can’t remember the last day that we didn’t eat some type of salad for lunch or dinner. And this cool and refreshing Corn & Cucumber Salad is one of my favorite salads I’ve been making this summer. I like to use fresh grilled corn, but you could also use fresh corn that has been boiled, canned corn or frozen and defrosted corn.
