Why cook when it’s hot? Fresh corn is so sweet it doesn’t need cooking, anyway. Try this quick and easy cool salad with corn, snappy radishes, and a zesty lime dressing you’ll have to taste to believe: deliciously tart, sweet, and spicy. We give this recipe enthusiastic thumbs-up!
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 small jalapeno, seeded and chopped
1 1/2 teaspoons honey
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 cup vegetable oil
Coarse sea salt and freshly-ground pepper
Kernels from 4 ears of fresh corn
6 medium radishes, halved and thinly sliced crosswise
1/2 cup coarsely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
1/4 small red onion, thinly sliced
1. Whiz the lime juice, jalapeno, honey, and cumin in a blender. Add the oil with the blender still running. Add salt and pepper to taste.
2. Place corn, radishes, parsley, red onion, and dressing in a large bowl and toss to mix.
