SWEET CORN SALAD

SWEET CORN SALAD

In our family, all of us are fond of Sweet Corn. As you know apart from being tasty, sweet corn has numerous health benefits. This can be consumed in many ways. We can eat it fresh off the cob, roasted and spiced with chilli powder, salt, and lime or make a soup, snack or side dish out of it. Elsewhere in this blog, you will find recipes for Sweet Corn & Spring Onion Soup, Corn Methi Pulao, and Palak & Corn Cutlets.

Today's recipe is for an easy to make Sweet Corn salad. The beauty of a salad is that you can tweak the ingredients to suit your tastes. For example, some may add chilli powder, pepper powder, vinegar, etc.

I have described how I make this salad and it works fine for me each and every time.

  • Sweet Corn, 1 corn cob
  • Onion, finely chopped, 1/2 cup
