Raw Corn and Veggie Salad with Buttermilk Dressing


Fresh corn is usually sweet here in the Midwest. This raw corn salad has red pepper, Persian cucumbers, shallot, parsley, fresh dill and a buttermilk and yogurt dressing. Add the dressing at the table, as little or as much as you like

I found this recipe at Food52. It had a lot of likes and the raw corn and Persian cucumbers were new to me and sounded yummy. I usually quickly blanch  corn before using it in salads. I liked eliminating this step!

In a large bowl combine:

1 clove fresh shallot, sliced thin, rinsed in cold water, drained and blotted in paper towel 

3 ears fresh corn, kernels sliced off with a sharp knife

4 Persian cucumbers, (these are like English cucumbers with thin skins but only 5 inches long) quartered lengthwise and cut crosswise into a 1/4 inch dice

1 long red pepper, diced

1 handful fresh dill, minced

1/4 cup chopped parsley or cilantro 

Feta cheese as desired. You can mix it in or place it on top of the salad in large pieces

Raw Salad without the dressing:


Dressing:

Combine with a whisk in a small bowl:

1/4 cup buttermilk

2/3 cup European style plain thin yogurt

1 tablespoon white wine vinegar, the better the quality the better the taste I like a white balsamic or a champagne balsamic from out local oil and vinegar shop, Mercato di O & V, in Midland MI

3 tablespoons minced sweet onion

1 clove garlic minced with 1/4 teaspoon salt

Add with a whisk slowly in a steady stream:

1/4 cup olive oil

Add salt and pepper to taste

Serve the dressing on the side with the fresh salad
