ISO "non-mayo" corn salad recipe

Now in Texas we have much sweet corn on the cob.

I was looking for corn salad, preferable cold, as it is very hot here all ready..

but most of the online recipes call for mayo..

I was thinking, burn some corn on the grill, cut it up and add something likg\e fried onion and bell pepper with some Italian Dressing? and also cumin or cilantro?

My Mom said, add day old cornbread, but she uses Ranch Dressing, I was going for more sour.

Thanks, Eric, Austin Tx.

Why not make a corn based salsa?

This recipe sounds more like what you are talking about - Grandma's Corn Pudding Recipe - Allrecipes.com.l an ear of corn = about a can of corn. For the cream corn, here is a simple one:

Ingredients:
2 tbs. AP flour
1/2 tsp salt
2 tbs. butter
1 cup cream
1/2 cup milk
corn from 1 ear

Heat butter until it bubbles. Add the flour and salt and stir to make a roux. Let it cook, stirring often, until it is blonde in color. Slowly whisk in the cream and milk. Add the corn. Simmer for 5 minutes. Place the cooked mixture into your blender and pulse a couple of times. You don't want whole corn kernels, but you don't want it blended either.

Here are a few. Mix up ingredients to your taste; any of these can be served at room temperature or chilled.

I would take the kernels (blanch the cobs and then remove the kernels), add some diced green and red peppers, diced jalapeno pepper, diced cucumbers, chopped tomato or cherry tomatoes, some black beans, onion, garlic, fresh cilantro, lime juice, EVOO, S&P to taste and serve it on a bed of leaf lettuce.

We've made this for years, mostly for taco salad, but also as a side for grilled chicken or shrimp.

The recipe above, courtesy of Bookbrat, is almost identical to the one my wife and I have enjoyed for years. It is almost ideal for cookouts, picnics or any time as a side dish. The only variation we make is adding chili powder, a little garlic powder and fresh cilantro. It is refreshing when chilled and not liable to spoil if left out.
