Raw Corn and Radish Salad with Spicy Lime Dressing

Inspiration:
A need to bring a salad to book club tomorrow, and this recipe from Food and Wine.


Ingredients:
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 small jalapeño, seeded and coarsely chopped
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 4 cups fresh corn kernels (from 4 ears)
  • 6 medium radishes, halved and thinly sliced crosswise
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • 1/4 small red onion, thinly sliced

Instructions:
  1. In a blender, puree the lime juice, jalapeño, honey and cumin. With the machine on, add the oil. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. In a large bowl, toss the corn with the radishes, parsley, red onion and dressing. Season the salad with salt and pepper, transfer to plates and serve.

Suggested Beverage: Hmm... not sure. Beer?

Notes: This is ok, but I much prefer the Black Bean and Corn Salad.
