Every summer BBQ has corn on the cob, but because you often have to buy a dozen at a time, there’s always lots of leftovers. I promised to give you some recipe ideas to use it up, and this roasted corn salad with fresh herbs couldn’t be easier!

It’s light, crunchy, and packs a ton of flavors into one dish. Plus, the fresh herbs like mint and basil make it tasty to look at and even better to eat! Serve this roasted corn salad at the next BBQ party you attend, or take it for lunches during the week.
