Blueberry Corn Salad

6/17/2019 – Made this with our corn, blueberries, cucumbers, and jalapenos. Nice crunchy salad. The jalapenos are not distinctive but add a zing that is nice. The feta cheese gives it a Mediterranean tone. Several of the quantities below were increased from the original preparation. This dish was inspired by a recipe here.

Ingredients

  • 6 ears fresh sweet corn from our garden.
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries from our bushes
  • 2 medium (5-6 inch) cucumbers from our garden peeled into strips and chopped into 1/2 inch cubes

  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro from our garden
  • 2 jalapeno peppers (2″ long) from our garden, seeded and finely chopped

2 tablespoons lime juice
2 tablespoons pecan oil
1 tablespoon honey
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon salt

Boil corn for about 5 minutes or until tender. Cut corn from the cobs and let it finish cooling. Try it with raw sweet corn.
