Spaghetti-corn Relish Salad

Spaghetti-corn Relish Salad (BHG)


  • 1 14- to 16- oz. pkg. dried multigrain, whole wheat, or regular spaghetti
  • 4 fresh ears of sweet corn, husks and silks removed, or 2 cups frozen whole kernel corn
  • 1 small cucumber, seeded and chopped
  • 1 small summer squash, chopped
  • 1 small red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 stalk celery, thinly sliced ( did not use)
  • 1 large red sweet pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. dry mustard
  • 1/2 tsp. celery seed (did not use)
  • Not included in original recipe : 1 package of chicken tenderloins, grilled


1. Cook spaghetti, with 1 tablespoon salt added to water, according to package directions; add sweet corn during the last 3 minutes of pasta cooking time. Use tongs to transfer ears of corn to cutting board. (If using frozen corn, drain with pasta.) Drain spaghetti; rinse in cold water and drain well. Cook chicken on grill until fully cooked and put to the side.

2. Cool corn until easy to handle. Hold corn upright. With fingers away from knife blade and cutting down the length of the corn cob, cut off corn in planks.

3. In large serving bowl combine cooled drained spaghetti, cucumber, squash, onion, celery, sweet pepper, and chicken

4. In jar combine vinegar, oil, sugar, dry mustard, celery seeds, and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Cover; shake well to combine and dissolve sugar. Pour over spaghetti mixture (you do not need to use all of it, I did not); toss to coat. Gently fold in corn planks. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate up to 24 hours. Makes 8 servings.
