Corn and Blueberry Salad

This post is coming to you from Louisville, Kentucky! My little boys and I drove 740 miles in 11.5 hours yesterday. It sounds impossible, but we did not have even a single hiccup in our travels. I have some tired boys today, however. Thankfully our hosts are taking the BEST care of us. We have three more full days here before we move onto Charlotte. More on our travels another time! For now, you must put this on your summer salad list! I found it over at Better Homes and Gardens and it was fresh, addicting, zingy and sweet all at once.

Here's what you'll need: corn, blueberries, cucumbers, a jalapeño, half of a red onion, cilantro, lime juice, olive oil, cumin and salt.

Omit the jalapeños, if desired, but I promise the heat isn't over-powering.

Enjoy the salad AND your week!
