Is it even summer if there is no corn salad? You will want to make this spicy corn salad all the time. It is full of fresh and simple ingredients which create a symphony in your mouth. Is that okay to say?
Cook the corn quickly in the microwave. Simply wrap each ear of corn in a wet paper towel and cook in the microwave for 1 minute on high. While the corn is “cooking”, chop the onion, red pepper, jalapeño, cucumbers, green apples, mint, and lime. Drizzle with a tangy and simple honey-lime vinaigrette.
Summer salads are my jam. It is the only time that I will eat a salad I made at home. Otherwise, like the meme says, I only like salads that are made by other people and cost me $16.
This salad is also easy to adapt. Add in your favorite vegetables or whatever is in the fridge. The honey and lime vinaigrette will add a burst of flavor to any fresh vegetables you may want to add. I recommend black beans and avocado.
How much jalapeño do I need?
Jalapeño is one of the milder chilies so include all the seeds when making this salad if you enjoy spice.
If you don’t like spicy, I feel very bad for you. Joking aside, simply make sure to limit the number of seeds in the salad. The seeds and membrane are the spicy portions of the jalapeno.
Make this summer salad along with my Peruvian Chicken, Tandoori Chicken, Muhammara or Eggplant Caponata for a summer bbq. Also, this summer salad is gluten-free and vegan. Perfect for anyone’s dietary preferences and restrictions.
