Charred Corn and Feta Salad - Simply Made Recipes (1)Recipe Swap Club took a much needed Summer vacation but we are back and swapping recipes! Recipe Swap Club is a group of food bloggers who get together monthly to connect and swap recipes. I was tasked with recreating a recipe from Eat What We Eat.

Becky is the editor and chef from Eat What We Eat. She grew up in my neighboring state of Kentucky and now resides in Australia. Her recipes have a lot of flavor and International inspiration but still made with everyday ingredients and simplicity. You really must check out her site for some gorgeous photography, how-to videos and delicious, family friendly recipes.

Charred Corn and Feta Salad - Simply Made Recipes (2)I spent a lot of time searching for a recipe. I would find a great recipe that I wanted to make and then come across another I needed to make… and then another. I ended up choosing thisCharred Corn and Feta Salad because the simplicity and the fact that if you yell “FETA cheese”, I will suddenly appear. Plus, the kids love corn and tomatoes so I knew it would be a hit like it will on your families table, too.

Charred Corn and Feta Salad

Preparation of this Charred Corn and Feta Salad is super simple. I changed some of the instructions from the original recipe to oven roast my corn. I mainly did this because I was also cooking chicken in the oven so it just made sense to save some time and effort.

Charred Corn and Feta Salad is strong in flavor. There is a really nice balance of sweet corn ad cherry tomatoes with the feta cheese and peppery-taste of the basil. The vinegar in the dressing makes a strong appearance but really works when all the ingredients are together.

For the main dish, we baked some chicken with olive oil rub and salt/pepper sprinkle. Simple, simple, simple… and still a delicious meal.
