Everybody at home likes fresh corn, so when I see them in the market, can't resist myself from picking some. I usually boil it or grill it directly on stove top, both ways they taste very good. But the problem with corn on the cob, is the fiber that gets stuck in the tooth and if you are wearing braces, then it's a big 'No'. So I thought of using the grilled corn in a salad along with other vegetables and made a mint-ginger dressing to go with it. It turned out really good, you can also add some cooked pasta to it and make it a complete meal..
Need To Have
Fresh Corn - 1
Capsicum - 1/4 cup, chopped
Cucumber - 1/2 cup, peeled and chopped
Tomato - 1/4 cup, chopped
For The Dressing
- Olive Oil - 1/2 teaspoon
- Honey - 1/2 teaspoon
- Lemon Juice - 1 tablespoon
- Finely Chopped Mint - 1 tablespoon
- Grated Ginger - 1 teaspoon
- Black Pepper Powder - 1/4 teaspoon
- Salt - to taste
Grill the corn on stove top, as shown or on a outdoor or indoor grill. Slice the grilled corn kernels off the cob using a knife or a corn peeler, it came to about 1 cup. Mix the corn with all the other chopped vegetables. Mix together all the ingredients given for the salad dressing. Add it to the vegetables and serve.
This salad tastes equally good when had at room temperature or chilled.
Add the salad dressing just before serving, the cucumber and the tomatoes will ooze out water.
