Really good summer salads
Unfortunately, no pictures but this past Saturday night we made a delicious meal. Korean Style Beef, spicy corn salad and watermelon feta salad.
If you love cilantro, I highly recommend the Korean Beef. We used flank steak this time. It was fantastic.
For the corn salad, I boiled 6 ears of corn. Put the corn in a large pot of water, cove the corn with water, and toss in some kosher salt. When the water comes to a boil, the corn is done. I took the kernels off the corn and added a spicy dressing. 6T lime juice, 4T olive oil, 2T granulated sugar, 1/2 spicy pepper (jalapeno is fine), 2t. cumin and a couple of shots of a hot sauce (Tabasco works fine). Mix is up and toss over the corn salad. Adjust the seasonings to your palette.
Then we took a long rectangular tray and sliced the watermelon into small triangles. We also took a hunk of French feta ( you could use any type of feta ) and sliced that into triangles too. We layered it. Two slices of watermelon, one slice of feta. We then took a pint of the best yellow cherry tomatoes I have ever had – they literally taste like candy – and cut them in half and tossed them on top of the watermelon and feta. We also made a very light lemon vinaigrette. 1 T lemon juice, 2 T mustard, 8 T olive oil, salt and pepper. We slowly poured this dressing over the top of the salad and served. We did not use the entire amount of dressing just enough to wet the salad. Stuffed a few basil leaves around the edges for look and voila. This is a big winner.
Sorry no pics…camera was on the fritz.
