Summertime is my favorite time of the year for food. There is always something fresh that needs to be grilled, sauteed or eaten straight from the vine. It will soon be time to have fresh corn from the garden. It is very rewarding to harvest a garden and eat the treats. This recipe is for corn that will soon be ready to pick. It calls for yellow corn, but my favorite is Silver Queen white corn. You choose your favorite.
-5 large ears of yellow corn (3 cups kernels)
-1.5 cups of finely diced sweet onion
-3/4 cups of finely chopped flat leaf parsley
-3 tbsp. of lime juice
-2 tbsp. of EVOO (extra virgin olive oil)
-1/4 tsp. salt
Microwave corn in husks, on high, until they are steaming and tender (7-9 minutes). When cool, remove husks and silk. Slice kernels from corn. Combine corn kernels, onion, parsley, lime juice, oil and salt and refrigerate. Serve cold.
I always like to chop a tomato and add to it.
