Grilled Corn Salad
6 cobs corn, grilled, corn removed
1/2 red onion, diced
1/2 cup celery, diced
1/2 cup red bell peppers, diced
2 tbsp. cilantro
1 clove fresh garlic, chopped
juice of 1/2 lime
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/2 tsp. sea salt
1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
1/4 cup sour cream
1. In a bowl, combine all ingredients except sour cream.
2. Serve corn salad topped with sour cream. It’s an extremely versatile side dish that’s delicious with chicken, meat, and fish.
Eric’s Tip: Another variation on this is to whiz it a few times with a hand blender or food processor, then substitute the sour cream for mayonnaise to make an interesting aioli. You can use it as a delicious sandwich spread or a base for chicken salad.
