I’m so glad May will be here soon–the weather is warming up, flowering trees are in full bloom, and more and more plants and flowers are springing up! And this time of year I start craving more summery kinds of foods–foods that are easy to make with minimal or no cooking involved. Like salads, for instance.
This Street Corn Salad is different from your typical salad–in addition to corn, it has cherry tomatoes, radishes, and feta cheese. I thought this combination of ingredients sounded really good. So I made it and discovered that the radishes add a nice crispy-crunchiness to the mix and the feta cheese and lime juice give the salad a great tangy flavor. I decided to add in some chopped green onion because a little onion never hurts in a savory dish like this. If you like these ingredients, I’m sure you’d like this salad. It makes a great side dish for a summery lunch or dinner!
