Mélanie's Salad




This is Mélanie's salad. I love it and always have since the day I put it in my mouth! She makes it better of course, it's originally her dad's recipe. It's a vinegary, savory, happy texture party in your mouth. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do. It works in all seasons, not just summer. She says the trick is in the olives and palm hearts! If your olives are great, and your palm hearts tender, your salad will be great.


 FUNDABBLER FACT 

Baby corn is just that, immature harvested corn! Traditionally in Asian (Chinese) cuisine but making its way to the western world.

 INGREDIENTS 

Mini Corn - 1 can (about 1 cup)
Green olives - 1 cup
Hard Cheese - Gouda is my choice, but white cheddar is good too about 1 cup of 1.5 cm cubes
Tomatoes - 2 large; largely cut
Cucumber - 1 English cucumber; largely cut
Palm of hearts - 1 can cut...largely
Balsamic Vinegar - about 1/4 cup
Olive oil - about 1/4 cup
Pepper to taste


Serves about 6
Takes about 20 min to make

 INSTRUCTIONS 

Chop your mini corn

Chop your tomatoes



Add your olives



Add your Palm of hearts
