This salad is beyond simple. What makes it work is using the very best and freshest ingredients possible. We love this with the Smoked Paprika Flank Steak that I recently posted. There is nothing as delicious as fresh summer "Jersey" corn in this. Tiny, sweet, little, uncooked kernels.
Not quite time yet....but soon!
I happened to have some red pepper in the fridge when I made this this first time so I have added it almost each time I made it. Not necessary though. I had to stop myself from embellishing it even further...black beans, cilantro...the list goes on. I think the absolute simplicity of this dish is what sets it apart....
