Olathe Corn and Zucchini Feta Salad with Balsamic Glaze

     Corn is King in summer!!!  Even confirmed vegetable haters drool over fresh sweet corn slathered with butter, salt and pepper!  Although some may scoff at our American passion of corn and say that it is fit for livestock only, once you try this specialty Olathe Corn then all will "feel the undeniable love" !!!  At the Corn Festival ( yes, there is a Festival the first Saturday in August every year in this town of 1500 with over 20,000 participants gathering to celebrate) in Olathe, Colorado, corn rules the town!!!  The farmers have sold most of the crop to the Kroger supermarket chain, which includes our local Dillons stores. This sweet corn is renowned for its tender and succulent flavor.  This is only available a few short weeks at the end of summer, which adds to its special nature. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE make sure to stop by and pick up a few husks to try today while you still have the chance!!!  In good health~paige  ;)
