Market Mondays: Corn Salad


Now that we're in the throes of summer, there is so much to choose from at the Greenmarket. I've been preoccupied picking up fruits and veggies to make my son's meals (I can't believe how much he eats) that I haven't focused on much else. This week though, I decided to make a raw corn salad for my husband and me. I started by cutting the kernels off a few cobs and added quartered cherry tomatoes (both yellow and red), diced avocado and cucumber, sliced scallions, a little lime zest and juice, and a dash of salt and pepper. Super tasty (especially with Food Should Taste Good's "The Works" chips) and incredibly easy.

Unless I missed it, last week was the first appearance of corn at the Union Square Greenmarket
 Organic tomatoes
Cucumbers on ice
Big bunches of scallions for $1.50
 The final salad- great with chips, on fish, or eaten solo
