Looking for a tasty and easy salad recipe to serve at your next party, then go on reading, this Sweet Corn Salad Recipe is for you! It is a quick, easy, tasty, fresh, colorful, and healthy Salad.
Fresh Sweet Corn is one of my favorite thing to eat anytime. It is sweet and juicy, and I love the smell when I peel the husk. I bought these from my local vegetable market and boiled it at home in a pressure cooker in 2 cups of water up to 5 whistles. I recommend staying away from canned or frozen sweet corn because fresh one tastes better than a tinned one.
I have prepared this salad by mixing boiled sweet corn with freshly chopped vegetables like tomato, onion and green capsicum, sprinkle of salt and black pepper powder with a dash of lemon juice. I have also added Roasted peanuts for that earthy flavor and a nice crunch. For that extra dose of color and flavor, I have added a few chopped Coriander/Cilantro leaves.
Variations for sweet corn salad :
This corn salad is a very flexible recipe. You can add any vegetables, spices, and herbs of your choice. If you have boiled sweet corn kernels handy in your refrigerator, then this is an absolute no-cook recipe. Give this recipe a try with different combinations of ingredients like cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, avocado, carrots, beetroots, red/yellow bell peppers, etc. If you want to eat this as a meal, add tossed paneer cubes, boiled pasta with pasta seasoning, or few toasts slices. If you are allergic to Peanuts, then don’t add them or replace groundnut with roasted cashew nuts. It tastes equally great.
Health Benefits of having fresh salad :
The vegetables which we have used are fresh so that the nutrients remain intact. Sweet Corn salad is full of Vitamins, Minerals, Fiber, Antioxidants, an excellent pre-biotic, good source of protein, and folate. It is low in fat. It improves overall your health. Hence, this corn salad is one of my favorite healthy and nutritious chaats. Groundnuts give healthy fat required for our body.
