2 Salads to Serve this Summer

Welcome to my Canada day salad recipe station.

You want your guests raving over your food and decor, am I right? That's why I wanted to create recipes there were obviously easy and something you can make them the night before, refrigerate and serve the day of you celebrations.  It's easy and most importantly delicious. 

Oh Canada Pototao Salad
3 pounds of golden baby potatoes

Juice of 1 1/2 lemons
1 teaspoon salt
3-4 teaspoons maple syrup
3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons of chopped chives

Boil potatoes for 10 minutes until you can poke a fork into them.  Drain potatoes, and allow them to cool before cutting them in half.  In mason jar add the ingredients for the dressing, shake well and pour over the potatoes and enjoy. 

Corn Salad
For this recipe I used fresh summer corn on the cob.  I just know you will enjoy the flavors of this sweet savoury dish. 

8 ears of corn husked and cleaned
1 cup of cherry tomatoes cut in half
½ cup of julienned fresh basil
2 tablespoons of chopped chives 

4 tablespoons of olive oil
4 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar
½ teaspoon of salt and pepper

In a large pot of boiling salted water cook the corn for approximately 4-5 minutes.  Drain and allow to cool.  When the corn is cool, cut the kernels off the cob.  Toss the kernels in a large boil, in a mason jar add the ingredients to the dressing, shake well and pour over corn kernels
