The Accidental Locavore shares a recipe for a refreshing salad with grilled corn, cilantro, mint and fresh lime juice. A summer salad recipe.


  • 4 large ears of corn, shucked
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup
  • 1 jalapeno, seeded and thinly sliced
  • 3 tablespoons mint leaves, coarsely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons parsley, coarsely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons cilantro, coarsely chopped


Step 1
Heat a grill or grill pan. Brush the corn with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill over moderately high heat, turning until cooked and charred in spots, about 12 minutes. Let cool.
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the onion and lime juice and let stand 10 minutes. Add the syrup, jalapeno, 2 tablespoons olive oil, salt and pepper and mix well.
Working in a large bowl or on a cutting board, cut the kernels off the cobs (you want chunks here). Add the onion dressing, mint, parsley and cilantro, and toss. Serve and enjoy!
