Recipe Notes

  • If sensitive to spice, omit the jalapeño.
  • This salad keeps well for 3 to 4 days in the refrigerator, covered.
  • For dairy-free or vegan salad, Use avocado instead of feta. If you’re missing feta’s salty punch, add some thinly sliced kalamata olives.
  • Raw sweet corn works the best for this recipe, but you could also use frozen corn, defrosted and drained.
  • For more smoky flavor? Grill the corn before making this salad.
