Ingredients

  • 4 ears sweet corn, husked

  • 2 bunches kale - stems removed and discarded, leaves torn into bite-size pieces

  • 1 teaspoon salt, or more to taste

  • 1 large red bell pepper, chopped

  • ¼ cup pineapple juice

  • ¼ cup olive oil

  • 2 tablespoons salsa

  • 2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning, or to taste

  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1 teaspoon onion powder

  • salt, to taste

Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add corn to boiling water and turn off heat. Let corn soak in hot water for 5 minutes. Remove the corn, reserving the cooking water in the pot. Set corn aside to cool before slicing kernels from the cobs into a mixing bowl.

  2. Return the pot of water to a boil; add kale and 1 teaspoon salt. Boil kale until bright green and tender, about 5 minutes; drain and set kale aside to cool. Once cool enough to handle, squeeze as much liquid from the kale as you can. Separate leaves and add to bowl with corn kernels.

  3. Stir red bell pepper, pineapple juice, olive oil, salsa, Cajun seasoning, garlic powder, and onion powder into the corn and kale.
