Best of Summer Corn Salad! (GF, DF)

Did I mention it’s summer here?! Well, technically it’s autumn now, but since I’m in Australia, I’m still classifying it as a New England summer! Like many backpackers or those on a working holiday visa, I’ve moved around quite a bit and am currently settled on the Sunshine Coast. It’s just a short bus ride or run from Noosa!

I love it here! So, in honor of all my summertime happiness, I’m sharing a dish filled with the best flavors of summer. In fact, the lobster is a favorite flavor from my home in New England. I must admit that I don’t always keep up with new recipes while traveling, so I’m sending all my gratitude to my mom for making up this dish!
