Foodie Friday: Corn Salad with Marjoram Dressing

One comment

One of the things out of my TexSelect Farm Grab Box was fresh marjoram. I had no idea what to do with fresh marjoram so of course I went to my handy cookbook and found a variation of the recipe below. This salad is nice and light and perfect for two people for an easy dinner.

Ingredients:

Salad:

  • 1 Large Can Whole Corn (you can also grill corn on a grill and cut it from the cob)
  • 1 Cup Cherry Tomatoes Quartered
  • 1 Cup Crispy Diced Bacon (I used turkey bacon)
  • 1-2 Sprigs Fresh Marjoram for Garnish

Dressing:

  • 2 Tbs. Fresh Marjoram Diced
  • 2 Tbs. Fresh Diced Shallots (or use red onions and more can be used if you prefer)
  • 2 Tbs. Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 6 Tbs. Olive Oil
  • ¼ Tsp. Sea Salt
  • ¼ Tsp. Black Pepper

Directions:

  1. Mix dressing ingredients together and set aside for use later.
  2. Cook the bacon to crispy, set aside to cool and dice. While bacon is cooking quarter tomatoes.  
  3. If using regular bacon drain most of the grease, if you used turkey bacon add a small amount of olive oil (about 1 tsp.) to the pan. Drain corn and saute on medium-high heat.  
  4. Place all salad ingredients in a bowl, garnish with marjoram sprig.
  5. To serve, pour over dressing and mix salad.   

****Tip: If you don’t have access to fresh marjoram use parsley or basil instead.***

I hope that you enjoy this recipe as much as I did. Please let me know of any variations you try and how they work out for you. If you enjoy my blog please consider buying me a cup of coffee.
