Zesty Lime Corn Salad

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

Sometimes I just crave corn.  I love the fresh, pop that it has when you bite down.  As the summer temperatures rise I aim for dishes that are refreshing and light.  This recipe fits that bill to a “T”.  If you make this dish, please, please use only organic corn.  If you can’t get any fresh, organic corn in your supermarket or farmers market,  it is just fine to use frozen organic corn.  Just allow the corn to thaw prior to making the dish.

Whenever I have corn I am flooded with a memory that takes me back to when I was around 7 or 8 years old.  My Uncle Billy, whom I worshiped and adored growing up, used to meet up with a buddy of his in a corn field.  My uncle would put me on his shoulders and we would weave our way through the crazy maze of corn.  They would both whistle to act as beacons to find each other.  Back then I always “thought” I was the scout while perched on his shoulders,  straining my eyes to see through the corn stalks.  In reality the corn stalks were still just as tall as we were and I couldn’t see a darn thing…but none the less, I still felt important. :)

Thank you Blender Health for this recipe!

    Why do you stress so profusely to only use organic corn? For financial reasons the only produce I purchase organic are those items on the EWGs Dirty Dozen list. Corn is on their Clean Fifteen list.

    Ay first I was a little sceptical. Some of the ingedients seemed a little strange. This recipe is amazing and so refreshing. All the flavors and textures worked so perfectly. My sons here for 3 weeks and looks forward to my uncooking. I cant wait to share this with him.

    This is supper tonight Amie Sue!

    I was out this morning buying things to make zucchini spaghetti for lunch, and when I saw the fresh corn on the cob I grabbed some. As you know of my problem here, one minute something can be here and the next *poofskie*, so I snagged the corn in mind of having your salad. Good corn is hard to come by, with it mostly tasting like field corn from back home. I could tell that this was going to be a sweet corn and not cow feed. ;)

    I was a rebel though, and deviated with adding some cumin to it. Everything is together and soaking in the fridge right now! Mmmmmmm!!!

    Chausito

    I put a can of olives in and made some of your ‘sour cream’ to go with it. So good!
