Warm Corn Chowder Salad
Since summer is rarely conducive to chowder, we've turned corn chowder's ingredients into a perfect summer side dish with bacon, potatoes, red bell pepper, and plenty of golden sweet corn.
The best rule of thumb for buying fresh sweet corn: Buy local, whether from a farm stand, a farmers’ market, your own garden, or grocery store.
Cook bacon in a skillet until crisp; transfer to a paper towel-lined plate and drain all but 3 Tbsp. drippings from skillet.
Add potatoes to skillet; cook over medium heat until starting to brown, about 3 minutes. Stir potatoes; cook until almost tender, 3 minutes more. Add bell pepper; cook, until vegetables are fork-tender, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes. Stir in corn; cook until heated through, about 3 minutes.
Transfer corn mixture to a bowl; stir in onion, chives, and thyme. Whisk together oil, vinegar, and honey; toss with corn mixture, then season with salt and black pepper.
