Cilantro, Tomato, Corn Salad
3 ears fresh corn, cut from the cob
1/4 cup butter, melted
2 plum or regular tomatoes, chopped
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely chopped
1 small/medium onion or 1 bunch scallions, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 bunch fresh cilantro, chopped
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
1 Tbl. lemon juice
Sauté ½ onion or ½ bunch of scallions in butter with the corn until tender.
Stir the corn/onion mixture along with the tomatoes, jalapeno, remaining scallions or onion, garlic and cilantro. Season with salt, pepper, and lemon juice. Mix well, taste, and adjust seasoning if necessary. Some people like the salad warm, but you may prefer to chill it a little before serving.
