If it feels like the last gasp of summer, that’s because the autumnal equinox is pretty much here. As we pay our respects to the changing seasons, this asparagus, corn and feta salad recipe seems appropriate.
It combines a couple of veggies from the summer harvest for one last hurrah. (Let’s hear it for corn and asparagus in all their nutritious, delicious glory.)
Asparagus is low in calories and loaded with nutrients. It’s a great source of vitamin K and folate, plus vitamins A, C and E. It even packs in some micronutrients like iron, zinc and riboflavin.
Corn is rich in vitamin C, and yellow corn is a good source of lutein and zeaxanthin, two carotenoids that are excellent for eye health. Corn can also spike your blood sugar, so we add it sparingly to this salad as a sweet complement to the earthiness of asparagus and the tanginess of feta for a trifecta of flavor.
