I always like to try at least one new recipe when I’m having people over. Since I always have plenty of food, if something flops we’ll still eat well. I need not have worried last night. This salad from Pam Anderson’s Perfect Recipes for Having People Over was delicious! I put a bit less corn in it just because I only bought 4 ears. She said to use about 6 cups but that seemed like a lot. Now having had the salad though, I’d go with the full amount next time.
4-6 cups fresh corn, cut off the cob
1 12-ounce bag of coleslaw mix
1 red pepper, seeded and chopped
1 cup sliced green onions
1 15-ounce can black olives, sliced
6 Tbs chopped fresh cilantro
1 1/2 tsp Old Bay Seasoning
salt and pepper to taste
about 3/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup lime juice (about 2 limes’ worth of juice)
Put all the ingredients in a bowl and toss. I did everything ahead of time except the oil and lime juice, then added those right before serving.
It was a pretty and delicious salad, very colorful and with an excellent flavor!0
