It's either this, or watermelon. You can make it in any weather, but stove free cooking makes best sense in summer. Even children don't usually object to corn. And you can sub just about any raw or cooked veg. 'Nuff said – it's hot.
4 ears of corn, cut from cob (yes, raw)
Giant handful cherry tomatoes, halved
1 bell pepper, any color, chopped
1 jalapeño, chopped fine (temp sensitive types can skip)
4 scallions (or equal measure chives or red onion), chopped
Chopped cilantro, any amount if you have
Dressing: mix juice from 1 lime, an equal amount of rice wine vinegar, 1/4 teaspoon sugar, 1/4 teaspoon salt, a few grates of pepper, whisk in a teaspoon or so of oil. EZ to double.
Add ins: grilled chicken, steak, feta, olives, potatoes etc.
Enjoy – B
