Light & Easy Corn Salad

Posted by

Tonight I was in the mood for something light and refreshing for dinner. So I hopped on Pinterest and found a recipe I wanted to try. I saw this recipe and decided to give it a shot. I had to run to the market to get a few things but the actual  price of this recipe is very inexpensve and chances are you probably already have most of these items in your house already. Here are the ingredients:

  •  3 ears corn, cooked
  • 2 avocados, diced
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved (I use orange & red for a little color)
  • 1/2 an english cucumber, finely diced, skin on
  • 1/3  C. crumbled feta
  • 1/2 red onion, finely diced

Cilantro Vinaigrette

  • 1 tbsp. rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp. white balsalmic vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/2 freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tbsp. cilantro, chopped
  • 2 tsp sugar

First I chopped up all of my veggies.

Then I made the vinagrette dressing. I combines the first 5 ingredients, then the cilantro and then the sugar.

Then I combines all of the chopped vegetables and feta with the vinaigrette and tossed it until it was well coated.

It was so delicious I hd to stop myself after my 3rd helping.
