Corn, Radish, and Celery Salad makes a nice, light, summer side dish

See also

Salads were made for summer dining. They’re light, flavorful and healthy as well. Just about any vegetable, either raw or cooked, can be tossed with any other vegetable and instantly, you've got a salad.

Here’s a recipe that mixes three unlikely salad fixings: corn, radishes, and celery. The combination of these three tastes is a burst of summer for the taste buds. The corn is soft, while the radishes and celery are crunchy. The spicy radish flavor contrasts nicely with those of the savory oregano and the sweet corn. And the onion just pulls all the tastes together. This salad is a nice accompaniment to just about any summer entree.

Corn, Radish, and Celery Salad

Ingredients:

3 cups fresh or frozen corn kernels
3 radishes, washed and thinly sliced (add more if you like radishes)
2 stalks of celery, washed and diced
1/4 c. diced onion
1/4 c. olive oil
1/8 c. white vinegar
1/8 c. lemon juice (about the juice of two lemons)
2 T. oregano
Salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

1. Prepare corn, radishes, celery and onion and mix them together in bowl. Set aside.
2. In a separate bowl, whisk together oil, white vinegar, and lemon juice
3. Pour oil mixture over vegetables and stir
4. Add oregano and salt and pepper to taste

Let this be the summer you add new salads to your warm-weather meal repertoire. This one is sure to go into the “keeper” file.
