Corn Salad--Come on everyone's doing it.

There are grilled corn salads popping up everywhere so I thought I might not post this, but it was so good I decided I might as well meditate up the deliciousness. The process was simple, microwave three ears of corn with the leaves intact. When cooked, I placed the husked corn on a grill pan and then pressed the corn with another cast iron skillet. After a little snap crackle and pop in the skillet, I freed those sweet kernals from their cobs, added thinly sliced onion, quarter super 100 tomatoes, rice wine vinegar and grapeseed oil. Check out the picture--easy, breezy covergirl. Bring on the CSA basket, I am ready for more.

I have not been getting any corn yet from my CSA, but this salad looks really delicious. I love the colors!
By the way, I wanted to thank you for recommending the no croutons event. I appreciate it. :-)

OMG it's beautiful! Wow, the colors!

I love your microwave technique. I'll give that a try. It's going to be sad to see the sweet corn go.

Chou said...

What a great way to "grill" without grilling! I could do this! Woohoo. :)

Melissa said...

It's hard to go wrong with these flavors. I don't get sick of them either!

I like your technique as well. I use a grill pan usually because I have no grill. Next year!

Dee said...

Ooh, very nice. I'm loving the microwave bit :)

Very nice. Can't get too much corn when it's in season!

I like the use of rice wine vinegar. It's different!

Alexa: Glad to help out. You know our CSA pus a few things in their greenhouse like tents (they aren't heated or high emmission or anything.)

noble pig: Thanks and delcioius too.

Maggie: It is going to be sad.

chou: Happy to empower you. Though it sounds like you are doing an admirable job without a stove.

melissa: Yeah, it is hard to be grill-less. We all learn to adapt.

Dee: Thanks. It is an easy cheat that works.

Nate-n-Annie: Me too, love the summer corn.

Thank goodness, I am not the only person who when they say the word "easy" follows it (at least in their head) with "breezy cover girl".
