Corn and Blueberry Salad

Blueberry and Corn Salad

Blueberries with corn? No thanks. But after one bite I found myself going back for more. And before I knew it, it was gone! This salad is really different and even more flavorful with your farmers’ market’s crunchiest produce. Corn, blueberries, cucumbers and red onion are tossed in a simple lime dressing with fresh cilantro. It’s my new favorite summer salad.

Ingredients:

  • 6 ears fresh sweet corn, husked
  • 1-1.5 cups blueberries
  • 1 cucumber, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and diced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice and zest of 1/2 the lime
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • Pinch of kosher salt Freshly ground pepper to taste

Directions:

  • In a large pot bring salted water to a boil. Add the husked corn cobs. Cook, covered for about 15 minutes. Remove the cobs and let cool. Cut the corn off the cob (see note 2 below).
  • In a large bowl combine the corn, berries, cucumber, onion, cilantro and jalapeno.
  • In a small bowl mix together the lime juice, olive oil, cumin, salt and pepper. Pour over the salad.
  • Cover and store refrigerated until ready to serve.
