Fresh corn and alfalfa salad

Corn and alfalfa sprouts salad

I debated whether I should post this salad. Salads are so easy to assemble that it seems too much to give it a post but the pictures scream 'Spring' and it seemed so right for those of you who are experiencing the Winter chill. Just a fistful of alfalfa sprouts give it an extra dimension adding juice and water in every bite.

There isn't much of a recipe. Shell fresh sweet corns off the cob and steam with a pinch of salt till tender. This should not take more than five to ten minutes for about 200g of corns. Remove, cool to room temperature and place in a wide mixing bowl. Add halved cherry tomatoes (about 5), tender parsley or mint leaves, a dash of fresh ground pepper (I am heavy on this one), a pinch of dry oregano and salt. Squeeze half a lime (1/2tsp.), throw in a fistful of alfalfa sprouts and give it a good toss.

Serve and watch it disappear! Thane is famous for fresh corn and we make full use of the availability. My children take this quite often for 'short break' as it is nutritious and has enough carbs to get them through to 'long break':). My daughter puts this together in the evenings too when the two of them really feel like they need something before Mum comes home to cook dinner!
