On a fairly regular basis, I Google the ingredients I happen to have in my kitchen and see what comes up. Not surprisingly, the results have been mixed. But tonight it worked great. I like to imagine that one day, someone like me will Google corn, tomato, feta and lemon and this post will pop up and that person will enjoy a delicious, sort of healthy summertime dinner. This recipe from Chow.com was my inspiration and the ratios could be adjusted depending on what you have on hand or your preferences.
2 ears fresh corn (frozen corn thawed would work in a pinch)
4 small tomatoes on the vine
2 cups arugula or green of choice
1/4 of a red onion finely chopped
1/3 cup crumbled feta (my favorite is Pastures of Eden Israeli feta from Trader Joe's)
2 tablespoons fresh basil, chopped
Juice of 1 lemon
1 tbsp olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
Bring large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook corn for 4 minutes and remove. While corn cools chop other ingredients and place in a large bowl, sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cut corn off of cob and add to other ingredients. (The recipe called for an ice bath for the corn but that seemed like way too much trouble.) Drizzle lemon juice and olive oil over all ingredients and toss.
