Mexican Corn Salad


Mexican Corn Salad - Raw
6 Servings
Ingredients
5 ears of corn, shucked
1 small red onion/scallion, diced
1 Roma tomato, diced
1 jalapeno, diced
1 lime juiced
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
½ teaspoon sea salt
½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
½ cup cilantro, julienned

Method
For the raw version, cut corn off the cob, rinse and let drain in a colander.
For the cooked version:
In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook the corn for 3 minutes until the starchiness is just gone.
Drain and immerse it in ice water to stop the cooking and to set the color. When the corn is cool, cut the kernels off the cob, cutting close to the cob.
Raw/Cooked version:
Toss the kernels in a large bowl with the red onions or scallion, tomato, jalapeno pepper, lime juice, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Just before serving, toss in the fresh cilantro
Taste for seasonings and serve cold or at room temperature.
