Why this is the best Corn Salad 

The Corn Salad comes with an easy to make dressing: red vinegar, olive oil and fresh garlic in my opinion is all it needs to make a great easy dressing that is bursting with flavor.

Vegan bacon bits not only brings a smoky flavor, but also adds a crunchy texture.

Avocado, do I need say more? The creamy and rich texture makes everything better, friends.

If you have time you can grill the corn, but there is absolutely no need, because it tastes great as it is.
