Corn & Mango Salad

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!

Ingredients

  • 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.
