Corn & Mango Salad
I love all summer fruits and vegetables. One that I will definitely miss is corn! There’s nothing like fresh sweet summer corn. I made this salad recently and can’t wait to make it again before all the delicious fruits and veggies are out of season. You should try it too! This made a lot of salad!
- 3 ears of corn, cooked, and sliced off the cob
- 1 large or 2 small red bell peppers, diced
- 1 small sweet onion, diced
- 1 jalapeno pepper, minced (optional)
- 1 mango, diced
- 1/3 cup cilantro, minced
- 1 TB olive oil
- juice of 1 lime
- 1 TB sherry vinegar (you could use red wine vinegar)
- salt and pepper to taste
- Avocado (optional)
Toss all the ingredients together (except for the avocado). Let marinate in the fridge for a couple hours, it tastes better with time! Top with avocado if you like, for me the avocado added a whole other lay of flavor to the salad.
Make it a meal by topping it with grilled chicken or shrimp. Delicious!
I love making large batches of salads that can stay in the fridge. It makes for a really easy meal. If you don’t have any extra chicken lying around but want some protein to round out your meal try having a yogurt for dessert and you’ll be nice and full.
