In a word – Yummy!!! I have tried this with leftover steamed corn on the cob or grilled corn – either way it is so fresh and delicious you will love it. Serve as a side dish/salad/grilled meat or fish topping or even try it served over greens for a change to your green salad.
4 cobs of corn – grilled or steamed
Remove corn from cob, and if you want a warm dish, mix everything together and serve. If you are looking for a cold or room temperature side, just allow corn to cool first.
1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced
2 1/2 tbsp fresh lime juice
Combine the onion and lime juice – let stand for at least 10 minutes – this will mellow out the flavour of the onions
1 tsp maple syrup
1 jalapeno, seeded and thinly sliced
3 tbsp each of minced or torn mint, parsley and cilantro leaves
Combine all of the ingredients – and taste. Season with salt and pepper as needed.
