Fresh Corn And Vegetable Salad

source: Alanna Kellogg

This corn salad has lots of taste, but it’s not as tangy as many corn salads are. Sometimes, depending on my mood, I enjoy that.

The recipe comes from a Jewish cookbook belonging to a neighbor.  I made some small changes, but the basic dish remains the same. I would love to give credit to the cookbook, but sadly, the cover and first few pages were missing.

Ingredients

Salad:

2 can of corn (drained)

1 cucumber, diced

1 red pepper or tomato, diced

2 pickles, diced

1 purple onion, diced

Dressing:

3 tbsp olive oil

1/2 tsp prepared mustard

2 Tbsp red wine vinegar (original recipe called for lemon juice)

1 tsp salt

1/4 tsp pepper

Directions

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Mix well.

Spice Store 1

I have a new favorite store. It’s located just a few blocks from my home and it sells every spice and seasoning you can possibly conceive of.

Spice Store 2

Among the many goodies I found were both cinnamon bark and cinnamon sticks, edible roses and what I think were preserved lemons. Plus it had at least a dozen kinds of halva (a sweet treat made from sesame paste), pickled lima beans, and all kinds of middle eastern pastries. In addition, it had an enormous selection of unusual grains, wines, and olives. I feel like the list could go on for days. Yum!

Spice Store 3

I skipped all of that though, and spent my time at the spice counter. It had dozens of spices to choose from but in the end I purchased a tiny clear box of saffron, a bag of garam masala and a bag of za’atar.

The next time I go I’m going to check out the wet bins. I saw a wet mix made of all kinds of slivered nuts and dried fruits. I have no idea what it is, or what it’s used for,  but I’m thinking it’s got to be delicious.
