Blueberry Corn Salad



I found the recipe on A Healthy Life For Me. It was so nice that I didn't have to go out and get anything for this recipe. I whipped it up in no time and I can tell you it was another winner!

Ingredients:

6 ears fresh sweet corn, husked
1 cup fresh blueberries
1 cucumber, sliced
1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely chopped*
2 tablespoons lime juice
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon honey
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Directions:

To cook the corn you can either place it in a pot of boiling water for about five minutes or steam it until the corn is tender.

Once the corn is cooked remove from the pot and place on a plate and let it cool.

Once the corn has cooled off and you can handle is safely, cut the corn off the cob and place corn in a medium size bowl.

Place the onion, cucumbers, jalapeno in the bowl with the corn and gently add the blueberries.

In a small bowl mix the olive oil, lime juice, honey, cumin and salt & pepper.Whisk until everything is combined.

Pour over the corn combination in the bowl and made sure the dressing covers all of your salad.

Cover and add to the refrigerator until ready to serve. 
* I used two small red habaneros- from my plant on the deck.
