Fresh Corn Salad

(5)

I created this fresh corn salad to serve with our lobster dinners that we have about once a month (seafood Sunday). I wanted to do something outside of the traditional sides like corn on the cob and potato. It's now a family favorite! Goes well with a grilled steak or tuna steak as well. The combination of sweet with the corn and salty with the feta is an unexpected delight!

Ingredients

  • 3 ears sweet corn

  • 1 ½ pints cherry tomatoes, halved lengthwise

  • 1 bunch green onions, diced

  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 2 tablespoons aged white wine vinegar

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • 1 (4 ounce) package feta cheese, cubed

Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add corn and cook for 10 minutes. Drain and cool under running water so it's easier to handle.

  2. Cut corn off the cobs into a large bowl. Add tomatoes, green onions, cilantro, olive oil, vinegar, salt, and pepper and mix together. Add feta cheese just before serving.

Cook's Notes:

Yasou Greek Dressing can be used instead of the olive oil and vinegar.

Crumbled feta can work just as well, I just prefer to have the larger cubed pieces.

You can marinate the salad prior to adding feta cheese in the refrigerator until you're ready to serve.
