After a few months of hot weather, it’s just now beginning to feel like fall in the valley. Leaves are starting to drop and I just opened our windows for the first time. And yet, I’m still making summer recipes. Summer always feels a bit longer in California but I’m okay with that. I’m not ready to see tomatoes leave the market quite yet.
If you still happen to have sweet corn, this couscous salad is for you. The sweet corn is left raw which highlights the sweet, delicious flavor. The sweet corn mixture is actually a component and is wonderful serve on grain bowls, added as a taco topping, or used in a quesadilla. If raw sweet corn isn’t your style, saute the sweet corn kernels in a bit of oil then toss with the scallion cilantro mixture once slightly cooled!
