My husband and I have been watching an unhealthy amount of Kitchen Nightmares. The total plus side is that because it’s on Netflix nothing is bleeped out. That means I get to hear him say the f-word about 50 times an episode. I’m totally not bothered by this because I would rather hear the f-word that listen to those stupid beeps they insist on inserting on the TV version.

What can I say, I like my TV chefs Scottish and ready to use the f-word whenever necessary.

While I cannot put together a feast like chef Ramsay, and my kitchen will never get a Michelin star, I can throw together a pretty good salad. This summery corn blueberry salad is perfect summer and can be made a day in advance and still taste great.

As soon as I see fresh summer blueberries and corn for sale I always buy it in mass quantities. Usually I eat the blueberries plain and the corn steamed BUT sometimes I like to mix it up. That’s where this salad comes into the play. To start, I boiled my corn but you could also grill your corn to add another level of flavor. The dressing is a simple mixture of lime juice, olive oil, honey and  a touch of cumin.

This salad is basically summer in a bowl. A big giant summer salad. Sooooo you should make it. Immediately, if not sooner.

    I think combining the corn and blueberries for a salad is genius.

    Just so happens I’ve got a big bowl of blueberries that my mother in law picked last week, sitting in my fridge. I’m thinking I’ll try this. BTW, I was smiling all through the Chef Ramsay talk. I was lucky enough to go to a local restaurant while they were filming Kitchen Nightmares and next thing I knew, I was being asked to cook (because of course I said my food was better than the restaurant) and a film crew was in my home and Chef Ramsay was IN MY KITCHEN. True Story.

    I am loving the idea of blending blueberries and corn in a salad! Also, I too have a Chef Ramsay show obsession. Right now it’s the “F-Word” and ” Master Chef”. Those shows are addictive and also inspirin to us “foodies” 😉
