Corn Salad With a Kick!

Image

This is the perfect salad to accompany any dinner or lunch dish in the summertime. Or even on top of a bed of lettuce for a healthy salad with a twist! Here’s what’s in this refreshing salad…

-4 ears of corn (grilled)

-1 small red onion

-1/2 cup chopped green onion

-4 fresh garlic gloves (minced)

-about 1 cup of sliced cherry or grape tomatoes

-1 whole chopped cucumber

-1/2 orange pepper (chopped)

-1/2 red bell pepper (chopped)

-3 TBSP Olive Oil

-4 TBSP White Vinegar

-1/4 Ground Cayenne Pepper

-1 TBSP Hot Sauce (I like Pepitos 🙂

-1 TSP Sugar (I used a Stevia Plant sweetener and it gives it plenty of sweetness )

-3 Limes squeezed

-Dash of S+P

Start by peeling and cleaning 4 ears of corn. I opted out of grilling outside in the heat and used my Cast Iron 😉 Grill with olive oil and rotate with tongs to get an even cook on all sides…

Collect all the veggies you’ll be using then get to chopping! The smaller the chop the better. It’s a better consistency with all the ingredients similar size…

Throw in a large mixing bowl as you chop them, then add in your fresh squeezed lime juice, (note-if you’re out of limes, lime juice from concentrate works too, Add about 1/4 cup).

Then collect your corn off the grill or skillet once you see these smokey grill marks…

Slice the corn right off the cob. Then add into your salad and lime mixture. Then add in your 3 TBSP Olive Oil, vinegar, cayenne pepper, hot sauce,  sweetener of choice, and dash of S+P. Mix all around with serving spoon or spatula and then chill for a minimum of hour.

Enjoy this light, healthy, and zesty summertime salad!
