Corn Salad

My friend Elaine (who I'm hoping to see after 12 years this Wednesday!), came up with this incredibly yummy corn salad. She calls it Iowa Corn Salad after receiving most of the produce from family in Iowa. I highly recommend it. I served it the other night with pork chops and sliced avacado.

Iowa Corn Salad
4 ears corn, cooked and then cut from cob
1 tomato, seeded & chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
1 banana pepper, seeded & diced
1/2 cucumber, seeded & diced
1 green onion, chopped
handful of cilantro, chopped
1/4 cup salted peanuts, chopped
1/4 cup goat cheese crumbles
1 1/2 Tbsp. lime juice
1 tsp. rice vinegar
2 tsp. olive oil
Kosher salt & freshly ground pepper, to taste

Just mix it all up, adding the peanuts and goat cheese crumbles last, and enjoy!
