Fried Corn Salad and Zine Winner!

First up, I want to be sure to announce the winner of Ballin’ and Baggin’, from the wonderful Panda with Cookie. Congratulations, Kelly C.! Please send me your mailing address and I’ll get this zine in the mail to you. It’s a fun one!

With the July 4th weekend upon us, it’s time to offer up some more recipes for cookout fun. You’re already doing the Incrediburgers, right? How about buns? I’m guessing you’ll probably have corn on the cob, so here’s an easy peasy recipe for your leftovers. You can also use thawed frozen corn, in a pinch.

Fried Corn Salad
Serves 4

1 tablespoon vegan margarine
2 cups cooked corn kernels
1/4 cup chopped red bell pepper
1/4 cup chopped celery
1/4 cup chopped peeled cucumber
2 tablespoons chopped scallions
1/2 small jalapeno, seeded and minced, optional
1 tablespoon minced fresh dill weed
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
Juice from 1/2 lemon
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
2 teaspoons olive oil
Salt and black pepper

1. Heat the margarine in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add the corn, stirring to coat with the margarine. Cook, stirring occasionally, 10 to 12 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from the heat and transfer the corn to a medium bowl. Add the bell pepper, celery, cucumber, scallions, and jalapeno, if using. Toss to combine.

2. In a small bowl, combine the dill, cumin, lemon juice, vinegar, olive oil, and salt and pepper to taste. Mix well, then pour over the vegetables and toss to combine. Taste and adjust the seasonings. Serve warm or cold.

Enjoy this recipe from American Vegan Kitchen. For future 4th’s of July, you’ll have even more options with my upcoming book, Grills Gone Vegan!

Happy Weekend!
