Although cooked corn eaten right off the cob is a classic Summer side, my favorite way to enjoy in-season corn is raw, stirred into a salad with basil and tomatoes. The kernels are slightly sweet, juicy, and have a nice light crunch. Raw corn can be mixed with everything from black beans to greens to fruit, and they are delicious in soup. If you've never had raw corn before, I suggest you give it a try. To encourage that you do, here you'll learn my easy technique for removing the corn from the cob.
