Food – Fresh Corn Salad

Food - Fresh Corn Salad

Fresh corn salad is one of my favorite summer meals. There are so many variations of it. I’ve printed a few on this blog and I have tried each of them. They are all delicious. Finding corn with no GMO’s can be tricky, but well worth it.

Fresh Corn Salad
INGREDIENTS
6 ears of corn
1 can black beans
1/2 large English cucumber
2 cups cherry tomatoes (1 cup red, 1 cup yellow)
1/4 cup red onion (or more if desired)
Cilantro
FRESH LIME VINAIGRETTE
2 limes
Olive oil
White balsamic vinegar
Cayenne pepper to taste
Garlic powder to taste
Salt to taste
HOW TO MAKE IT
Cook the corn (boiling or grilling both work – be sure not to overcook), and then cut the corn off the cob
Strain and rinse the black beans
Peel the cucumber, chop into small pieces
Wash the tomatoes and and cut them in half
Finely chop the red onion
Wash and chop a handful of fresh cilantro
Combine all of the ingredients, mix well and then prepare the dressing – afterward, pour it over the salad, mix and enjoy!
FRESH LIME VINAIGRETTE
In a small bowl, start by whisking together the juice of one and 1/2 limes, 1/4 cup of olive oil, 1/4 cup of white balsamic vinegar and the cayenne pepper, garlic powder and salt to taste
For me, making a salad dressing is all about tasting it and making adjustments — start with that foundation and adjust the rest of the ingredients to your taste
