Fresh corn on the cob is a sign of summer to me and I found some pale yellow corn cobs yesterday and made a tasty salad combining it with red onion, lime juice, fresh cilantro/coriander, chicken poached in lemon juice and olive oil (and I added those juices to the salad too) and red pepper flakes (to offset the sweetness of the corn). Omit chicken and you have a nice vegetarian/vegan salad.
2 x chicken breasts (poached in aluminum/tin foil with juice of 1/2 lemon and 2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil for 30 mins)
4 x corn on the cob
1/2 red onion – finely chopped
2 tbsp. cilantro/coriander – finely chopped
Juice of 1 lime
Red pepper flakes (according to taste)
Cut poached chicken into small pieces and reserve juices.
Boil corn until just cooked and cut off from cob
Place chicken, chicken juices, corn, red onion, cilantro, coriander, lime juice and red pepper flakes in a bowl, season with salt and freshly ground black pepper and mix well together.
