Recipe: Cabbage Salad with Toasted Corn

by Tsai

Two weeks ago, we served a simple salad featuring thinly sliced cabbage with corn, raw garlic, and radishes. The sweetness of summer corn works well with the sharpness of the garlic, radishes. and the crunchy raw cabbage, and we use golden raisins for contrast in flavor and texture, along with lemon juice to brighten the whole dish. The salad takes minutes to put together, and we think you’ll like it quite a bit.

Ingredients: thinly sliced raw cabbage; fresh corn kernels; finely minced raw garlic; thinly sliced radishes; lemon juice; canola oil; chopped cilantro

1. Fry corn kernels in hot oil until they start to brown, stirring ocassionally.

2. Combine garlic, lemon juice, canola oil, and salt and pepper to taste.  

3. Combine raw cabbage with the cooked corn, radishes, and a handful of golden raisins.

4. Dress salad and mix in cilantro before serving.
