Summer Corn Salad
(borrowed from Heidi's fabulous website: 101cookbooks.com)
6 ears of corn
1 large shallot, minced (I often use scallions or red onion)
1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
scant 1/2 teaspoon fine grain sea salt
2 tablespoons brown sugar
3 tablespoons sunflower oil
3/4 cup / 4 oz toasted pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
3/4 cup / 4 oz toasted sunflower seeds
1 teaspoon mexican oregano (I usually use regular oregano)
Shuck the corn and use a knife to cut the kernels from the cobs. Place the kernels in a medium bowl with the shallot while you make the dressing.
Combine the lemon juice, salt, and sugar in a small bowl or jar. Gradually add the oil, whisking vigorously until the dressing comes together. Taste, and adjust with more lemon juice, salt or sugar, if needed. This dressing should be on the sweet side, not overly tangy.Just before serving, add the seeds to the bowl of corn along with 2/3 of the dressing. Toss well, really get everything well coated. If you want more dressing, add more to taste. Crush the oregano between your palms and let it shower down on to the salad. Toss one more time and serve.
