Buttered Sweet Corn Salad

We look forward to summer for many things. The first and foremost reason being that we have the summer break. That means more time cuddling with the kids in the morning, spending lazy day in the pool and family vacations. One of the other reason is food. We, as a family are foodies and love to experiment with different food. Not sure if my boys eat well because I am a food blogger or I became a food blogger as they eat well. But either way it is a win win situation for us.

I hardly have to struggle to make them eat their vegetables or try new foods. In fact, one of their favorite food is salad. That is going to be my theme for this week. I am hosting Srivalli’s Kid’s Delight event this week and the theme for this month is Summer Salads. You can find the event announcement and rules to participate in the event in my Event Post.


Salads need not be complicated with loads of vegetables and dressings. It can be as simple as this Buttered Sweet Corn Salad, which happens to be one of my boy’s very favorite salad. I try to incorporate one salad with meal at least 2 to 3 days a week. I make bean salad, lentil salad (sundal) and sometimes make a elaborate and filling salad which becomes the dinner itself.

Buttered Sweet Corn Salad

We were first introduced to this Buttered Sweet Corn Salad in India. We ate this for the first time at a mall in Coimbatore and even though the boys felt the corn in US were much sweeter and flavorful, they liked the idea of using corn to make this Buttered Sweet Corn Salad. As the name suggests, the corn was buttery and had a little bit of heat from the red chili powder and tanginess from the lime juice and chaat masala.

I have used frozen corn kernels to make this Buttered Sweet Corn Salad. This gives us the opportunity to make this salad any time of the year and not just in summers. You could use fresh corn kernels and steam them a bit to make them tender.
