Sweet Corn Salad Recipe

A colorful & fresh salad with a nice citrus punch that can be assembled super fast

For some reason, the word salad always reminds me of green leaves on a plate or a plate full of cucumber pieces. It is hard for me to not corrupt a fresh bowl of salad with loads of dressing. So much so that it is actually dressing that I am having with a few bits of the veggies somewhere in there. This week, a cob of corn came along with my other veggies and I was on a mission to use it. This salad seemed quite simple. It is really simple. No much fuss. Easy to assemble and turned out to be quite interesting. The lime juice made a world of difference. The freshness it brought, yum.

I cooked a corn cob slightly in hot water and took out the kernels. If you have pre-processed frozen corn kernels then it gets even easier. The frozen corn can be put in some water or can be quickly zapped in a microwave before using. There is no oil in this one. The flavor is from the fresh coriander leaves. A hit of pepper and of course the lime juice. If you are packing this salad so that you can have it later, then don’t add the salt. It pulls out the water from the corn and other ingredients and makes the salad soggy. Best would be to add the salt, pepper and lime juice just before having.
