Watermelon-Feta Fresh Corn Salad
For a corn salad that was full of flavor and not waterlogged, we got out our frying pan and salt shaker.
Why This Recipe Works
Corn tossed with fresh produce and a bright vinaigrette seems basic, but bland corn and watery dressing reared their heads. To prevent the watermelon and cucumber from flooding the dressing with weepy juices, we first salted and drained them. Next, we toasted the corn for nutty depth. Finally, we stirred the feta, watermelon, cucumber, and mint into the cool mixture to sit just until the flavors melded.
