Chopped vegetable salad is my all-time favorite summer recipe. This has all of my garden favorites in one salad and is nice and light on a hot day. I add bacon to mine for a little more flavor but trust me, it’s just as good without it. And it’s easy to make!
4 ears of corn, husked (or you can substitute with one bag of SteamFresh Sweet Corn)
1 med. sweet onion, chopped
4 roma tomatoes, chopped
3 salad cucumbers, peeled and chopped
Optional–5 strips of bacon, chopped
Salt and pepper to taste
2 Tbsp. lime juice
2 Tbsp. olive oil
1 Tbsp. honey
1/2 tsp. ground cumin
Cook corn in a large pot of boiling water for 5 minutes or until tender. Once cool, cut corn from cobs.
Chop vegetables (and bacon) and place them and the corn in a large serving bowl.
In a small mixing bowl, combine olive oil, honey, lime juice and cumin. Pour over vegetables and stir well.
Refrigerate for 2-3 hours before serving.
