It is great to make use of fresh corns from the farm market in summer for this Corn and Crab Salad. Fresh corn is much sweeter than the frozen ones. We used artificial crab meat instead of real crab meat for this recipe. You can always substitute with real crab meat when crab is in season and much more affordable.
