Recipe from Susan Nye's Around the Table
Number of Servings
Serves 4 to 6
2 c. fresh (5 to 6 ears) or frozen corn kernels
1 red bell pepper chopped
3 to 4 scallions, thinly sliced
6 radishes, thinly sliced
4 carrots, roughly grated
2 T. fresh mint, roughly chopped
2 T. fresh cilantro or parsley, roughly chopped
Citrus Vinaigrette (recipe follows)
4 to 6 oz. mixed greens
2 to 3 oz. crumbled feta
2 to 3 T. sunflower or pumpkin seed kernels
Preparation - Directions
Bring small pot of water to a boil; add the corn and cook for 1 minute. Drain, rinse under cold water to stop the cooking and drain well. Transfer to a large bowl and let cool completely.
Add the pepper, scallions, radishes, carrots and 1/2 of the herbs to the corn and toss to combine. Drizzle with enough citrus vinaigrette to lightly coat and toss.
Divide the vegetables and store half in the refrigerator for Couscous Salad later in the week. Let the remaining vegetables marinate for at least 30 minutes in the refrigerator.
Just before serving, add the greens, remaining herbs and a little more vinaigrette. Toss to combine, sprinkle with feta and sunflower seeds and serve immediately.
