Zesty Corn Salad

~a summer favorite, that is body friendly~

Serving Notes: The below will serve about 6-8 people, or provide a weeks worth of Zesty Corn Salad for a family of 2-3.


  1. 6-8 ears of corn (I buy two 4 packs from Trader Joe’s)
  2. 2 jalapeño’s (you may only need 1, depending on the level of spice the pepper has)
  3. 2 large limes
  4. 6 individual radishes (or 1 pack from Trader Joe’s) here


  1. Boil a large pot of salted water and cook your corn for about 6-8 minutes.
  2. Remove and let cool
  3. Thinly slice your radish or you can mince, whatever your preference is. (I slice mine)
  4. Chop your jalapeño (‘s) very small (I separate the seeds, that way when mixing together I have more control of the spice)
  5. Extract the juice from your two limes, set aside.
  6. By this point, your corn should be cool enough to handle. Cut corn kernels from the stock, and put in a bowl. Repeat until all corn is removed.
  7. Add your radish, jalapeño and lime juice to the bowl of corn and stir!IMG_6264 2
