Pesto Corn Salad

pesto corn salad

We love this salad with fresh sweet corn, but canned or frozen work great for all year round corn salad.  This salad is an easy, bright and colorful dish to add to any menu or buffet table. 

We love using this Kale Almond Pesto for extra nutrients and interesting flavor, but any store bought pesto would work. 

Make Ahead Tip: Make this salad up to 2 days in advance and chill.
