Looking for things to do with corn on the cob? Not sure about where you live, but here, corn on the cob is super cheap at the grocery store. Plus, I buy up a bunch at the farmer’s market and freeze some. Frozen corn is a great way to enjoy corn any time of the year. I especially like toasted corn.

Macaroni salad is another summer favorite of mine. I also love this time of year because we can grill out or go on picnics. And eating salads, like macaroni salad, is a must.

I love salads. Whether it’s spring salads, cucumber salads, potato salad, and macaroni salads, to name a few, I enjoy making and eating salads.

I also love the flavor of toasted (as well as roasted and grilled) corn. Corn is a great vegetable to add to salads, I think.

    2. Remove to a baking pan lined with paper towels to dry while you make the sauce and chop the veggies.
    3. Put dried Macaroni in a large mixing bowl with the Red and Green Onion, Celery, Tomatoes, and Cilantro.
    4. In a small bowl combine the Mayonnaise, Greek Yogurt, Adobo sauce, and Lime Juice. Set aside.
    5. In a nonstick pan over high heat toast the Corn until browned, stir or pan flip often.
    6. When they are popping you’ll know you’re close.
    7. Just before the corn is done add the Garlic so it gets toasted, about 30-45 seconds is all it needs.
    8. Add to the mixing bowl with the Macaroni. Add the dressing and toss to coat.
    9. Salt and Pepper to taste.
