P.J.'s Fresh Corn Salad
A variation that makes this a stand-alone meal. First, microwave Silver Queen or other white corn IN THE HUSKS - 5 minutes for 2 ears, plus 30 seconds for each additional ear = 6 minutes for 4 ears. Allow to cool at least 5 minutes in open air, then "shuck," wash, and cut from cob. Substitute ripe avocado (or prepared quacamole) for green peppers, and add a generous amount of romaine torn into bite-size. Add 1/3 cup of grated extra sharp cheddar, 2 tablespoons of sour cream, and a tablespoon of your favorite chunky salsa PER PERSON TO BE SERVED...and omit the Italian dressing. For REALLY hungry folks, add 1/2 cup of taco or fajita seasoned and barbecue grilled thinly sliced steak, boneless chicken breast and/or thighs, or cold "sea legs" or chunks of crabmeat and/or lobster / shrimp. Toss and season to taste with sea salt, fresh ground black pepper, and lime juice. Serve with taco chips and more salsa on the side. Great with sangria, wine spritzers, or a beer. Make plenty, 'cause it "sells well"
