Vegan Fresh Corn Salad
I love fall. Probably because it is such a beautiful season in New England. The leaves are beginning to turn those glorious reds and yellows and the farmer’s markets are filled with lots of fresh vegetables. One of my favorite veggies is fresh corn. There is just nothing like it. Today we are making a fresh, practically right off the farm corn salad. It has such a fantastic amount of nutrients, but best of all, it tastes amazing.
- 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
- 1 tablespoon finely diced onion
- 1 minced or crushed garlic clove
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon finely minced basil & parsley
- 2 cups of fresh corn
- 1/2 tomato, finely diced
- 1/4 European cucumber, finely diced
In a small bowl, add lime, onion, garlic, and salt. Slowly add oil, while stirring. Mix in the fresh herbs. Cover and let sit in the fridge for an hour or more. This will decrease the raw flavor of the onion and garlic.
In the mean time, combine the fresh corn, finely diced tomatoes, and cucumbers in a medium size bowl. When it is time to serve, add the dressing to the salad and gently stir to combine.
