Corn and Cucumber Salad with Red Bell Pepper and Cilantro
The key to coaxing the most from these subtle summer players was supplying the right supporting cast.
Why This Recipe Works
To keep our recipe light and refreshing, we chose not to bog it down with too many ingredients. We lightly sautéed corn and red bell pepper, let them cool, and then tossed them with sliced red onion and cucumber. We flavored a bright lime vinaigrette with some smoky chipotle chile in adobo and rich sour cream, tossed in the corn–bell pepper mixture, and then topped the salad with a sprinkle of salty feta, mild avocado, and fresh cilantro.
