Corn in a salad

Friday, July 12, 2013

I love summer's fresh sweet corn - and I have found a way to eat it along with some other foods I enjoy: mixed in with black beans and chopped red peppers.
I eat it cold as a salad or warmed in the microwave as a side dish.
I have not added any dressing - because I like the natural flavors of each of the ingredients.

    That sounds so good. I love a salad with corn and black beans. Applebee's has one called a Fiesta Salad.. Of course it has plenty of salad dressing. Thanks for the idea.

    I also like corn in a regular lettuce salad. Adds a little burst of sweetness and sunshiny yellow color.

    Works for me and I have done many of the things the others have offered.
Pan fry onions, corn and red peppers SEPARATELY in a dry skillet to bring out the sweet in each. Then mix with beans, diced fresh tomatoes and cilantro or basil leaves.

    emoticon That sounds really good. I just made a grilled corn salad this week with broccoli, red & green peppers, chopped tomato, black beans, and sweet onion. It was dressed with fresh lemon juice and a little EVOO. Next time I make it, I will use lime juice instead. It was so fresh tasting...yum!
