Sweet Corn, Tomato and Zucchini Salad
Armed with a couple of ears of corn, a few grape tomatoes and a lone zucchini, I decided to dress this little salad with honey, lime and mint. Totally refreshing!
Serves 2 to 3
1 small zucchini
1 tsp salt
2 ears raw corn
1 1/2 cups grape tomatoes
2 Tbl honey
1 Tbl extra virgin olive oil
1 Tbl fresh lime juice
2 large mint leaves
Salt and pepper to taste
Trim the ends of the zucchini and dice into 1/4 inch pieces. Toss with the teaspoon of salt and then place the mixture in a colander to drain for about 45 minutes. After that time, rinse thoroughly and drain well.
Slice the kernels of the ears of corn. I like to do this in a large mixing bowl to avoid the kernels flying all over.
Slice the grape tomatoes in half and then combine them with the zucchini and corn.
In a small bowl, whisk the oil, honey and lime juice together and then pour over the salad and toss.
Slice the mint leaves thinly, stir into the salad and then season with salt and pepper. Chill before serving.
