Dawn’s Mexican Corn Dip

Living in South Dakota, we experience big changes in the weather from season to season. Many of us also see changes to our diets from season to season. Winter diets are heartier, while summer diets are lighter with lots more in-season foods to choose from.

We recently sat down with South Dakota soybean farmer Dawn to hear what summer cooking is like for her, including how she incorporates her favorite ingredient – sweet corn – into her family’s summer menu.
