Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 ears sweet corn, shucked
  • 1 small bunch leaf lettuce (about 4 cups finely chopped)
  • 2 ripe large peaches, sliced (or 4 small)
  • Juice of 2 limes (2-3 tsp)
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 10 leaves fresh mint, finely chopped
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

  1. Fill a medium-sized pot at least the width of your corn cobs with water and bring it to a boil over high heat. Add corn and cook until kernels are firm but tender, or to the doneness you like, about 3-5 minutes.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together lime juice, olive oil, mint, salt, and pepper until combined. Taste and season with additional salt and pepper as desired. Set aside.
  3. Wash lettuce and spin in a salad spinner if you have one. If not, allow to dry in a colander.
  4. Place chopped lettuce in a large wooden salad bowl.
  5. Transfer corn to a cutting board and slice off the kernels.
  6. Add corn to the bowl of greens. Add sliced peaches, then drizzle the dressing over the top. Toss to coat. Serve immediately.
