    Mexican Tomato and Corn Salad

    Mexican Tomato and Corn Salad



    Made this last night and loved it. I am a garlic fan but think maybe 3 cloves was a little overpowering. Other than that I wouldn't change a thing.


    YIELD: MAKES 4 CUPS


    Note: Queso fresco cheese is a widely available Mexican cheese usually found in most supermarkets by the other cheeses - it is usually in a round, thick disc. If you can't find it or don't like it, feta cheese would make a unique and delicious substitution.


    INGREDIENTS


    For the salad:
    1 tablespoon olive oil
    1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen corn kernels
    2 cups halved grape or cherry tomatoes
    1 cup crumbled queso fresco cheese
    2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
    Salt, pepper and sugar to taste
    For the dressing:
    1 tablespoon freshly grated lime zest (zest the lime(s) before juicing)
    1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
    1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
    1 tablespoon olive oil
    1 tablespoon minced garlic (from about 3 garlic cloves)
    DIRECTIONS


    In a large skillet, heat the 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium heat. Stir in the corn and cook until soft (but not mushy), 3-5 minutes, stirring/tossing occasionally. Cool corn slightly and set aside.
    Whisk together the lime zest, lime juice, vinegar, 1 tablespoon olive oil and garlic in a small bowl.
    In a medium bowl, combine the tomatoes, cheese, cilantro and corn. Toss the salad with the vinaigrette and season with salt, pepper and sugar to taste.
