Potato & Corn Salad for End of Summer Cooking

It’s end of summer cooking time and I’m to the point that I’m madly trying to try out all the recipes I found that use summer produce, but haven’t had a chance to cook yet. Enter in potato & corn salad for end of summer cooking.

This is what I get for procrastinating. But if you have a local farmer’s market near you this is a great recipe to try featuring summer potatoes and corn. Heck, you could certainly make this year round, just use frozen white corn – NOT canned.

Potato & Corn Salad

1 ½ lbs. small red potatoes

¼ cup diced red onion
½ cup diced celery
1/3 cup vegetable oil

½ tsp salt
¼ tsp pepper
½ tsp chopped fresh thyme (I used dried)
1 tbsp chopped parsley (I used dried)

Reduce heat to low
Simmer until just cooked, about 15 minutes
Drain; cut into halves or quarters
In a large bowl, combine corn, onion, celery and cooked potatoes
