Start to finish: 25 minutes
Servings: 4

  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 small jalapeno, coarsely chopped (remove the seeds)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon honey (can substitute agave to make it vegan)
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 4 cups frozen corn, thawed
  • 6 medium radishes, very thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup chopped parsley
  • 1/4 small red onion, thinly sliced

Use a blender to puree lime juice, jalapeno, honey and cumin. While blending, add the oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper. If you do not have a blender, consider mashing the jalapeno with a fork, then mix the ingredients well using a wire whisk until very well-blended.

Combine corn kernels with the sliced radishes, parsley and red onion.

Add dressing from the blender and stir to combine. Add any additional seasoning you desire, to taste, and serve.

Keep any leftovers in a tightly sealed container in the refrigerator.
