How do I come up with certain meals?….I OPEN THE KITCHEN AND SEE WHAT IS THERE! That is this side dish exactly and what a hit! I love the combination of flavors here. Some heat, sweet, and salty! This is so easy to put together and great for any Summer side dish. I highly recommend taking the time to roast the walnuts…yum.
1 cup walnuts, lightly toasted is recommended!
4 cups fresh corn kernels (4 ears), cooked
2 jalapenos, seeded and thinly sliced
2 tbs fresh lime juice, lemon can work too
2 tbs olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup feta, crumbled
1. Heat oven to 400 F. Spread the walnuts on a rimmed baking sheet and toast for about 6-8 mins. Let cool and roughly chop.
2. In a large bowl, combine the corn, jalapenos, lime juice, oil, walnuts, 1/2 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper. Sprinkle with feta just before serving. Enjoy!
