Ok, I know this sounds weird.
Blueberries and corn? Jalapenos? Onions? Honey? Whhaaattt?
But oh my gosh you guys this salad was out of control delicious. I had seconds and thirds and maybe even tried to lick the dressing off the bottom of the bowl. I’m legitimately proud of myself for sharing this with anyone else.
The sweetness of the corn and blueberries was cut perfectly by the spiciness of the jalapenos. The cucumbers were super refreshing and the honey, lime and cumin dressing added a just little warmth. This salad is basically the definition of summer.
Make this for you next party, or just keep in it your fridge and eat it for your next 6 meals in a row (you will not get sick of it, I swear). This summer salad is so unique and addicting, and will be a huge hit no mater what you do with it.
Prep time: 20 minutes + marinating time
Yield: about 6-8 servings
- 5 ears of fresh corn, steamed and cut off the cob (grilled would be delicious, too!)
- 1 pint blueberries
- 1 cucumber, sees removed, diced
- ¼ red onion, diced
- 1/3 cup cilantro, finely chopped
- 1 jalapeno, diced, seeds removed
- 2 tbs lime juice
- 1.5 tbs honey
- 1.5 tbs olive oil
- ½ tsp cumin
- ½ tsp garlic salt
Cook corn on the cob and then remove from cob and place in a large bowl. Add blueberries, cucumber, onion, cilantro and jalapeno and mix.
In a small bowl, whisk together all the ingredients for the dressing. Pour the dressing over the salad. Let salad marinate for a few hours before serving, up to 24 hours.
How easy is that? (Love ya, Ina)
