Donna’s Fresh Corn And Pepper Salad

There is something so special about fresh corn. This recipe adds a little color and a great dressing for a real taste treat.

4 large ears of fresh corn 1/2 cup thinly sliced green bell pepper 1/2 cup thinly sliced red bell pepper 1/2 cup chopped red onion

1/4 cup olive oil 2 tablespoons rice vinegar 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin 1/2 teaspoon salt dash pepper

Shuck corn and remove the silk. Place corn ears in a large pot of boiling water. Let water return to a boil and blanch (cook quickly) for 5 minutes. Remove corn ears from pan and chill under cold water. Use a sharp knife to cut corn kernels from each ear. Place corn kernels in large bowl. Add green pepper, red pepper, and onion. In a small jar or custard cup, combine dressing ingredients. Pour over corn and peppers. Stir to mix. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.

*Substitute 4cups of frozen corn if fresh corn is out of season.
