  • 1 1/2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • sea salt and black pepper, to taste

Directions

Prep:

  2. Defrost corn.

Notes

If fresh corn is available we highly recommend using it, or leaving it out of the salad and serving ears of grilled corn on the side! If we have it on hand we also like to top this with 4 ounces of feta cheese.
