Fiesta Corn Salad

This is a wonderful summer dish that is very easy to make and is very healthy as well. I tried this at my sister's home and loved it. Son #4 could not get enough- he was grabbing the edamame off others plates! Enjoy!

Fiesta Corn Salad

4 cups frozen whole kernel corn
1 cup frozen shelled edamame
1 tsp salt
1/4 cup red onion, diced
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
1 small jalapeno, finely diced
2 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp finely shredded lime peel
2 TBSP lime juice
1 tsp cumin
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 tsp chili powder
2 medium tomatoes, seeded and diced
Fresh cilantro

In a large sauce pan, cook corn and edamame in boiling water for 2 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water, drain again. Stir together salt, corn, edamame, onion, chopped cilantro and jalapeno. In a small jar with a tight fitting lid, combine olive oil, lime peel, lime juice, cumin, garlic, and chili powder. Cover and shake well. Pour over corn mixture. Toss gently. Stir in tomatoes and garnish with cilantro if desired.
