Crunchy Romaine and Sweet Corn Salad with Cilantro-Honey Dressing

Tons of crunch and tons of flavor in the awesome salad.



  • 2 romaine hearts, chopped
  • 5 radishes, thinly sliced
  • 1 small can shoepeg corn, drained and rinsed (use fresh raw corn off the cob in the summer!)
  • 1/2 pint of grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped purple onion

Cilantro-Honey Dressing

  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 2 and 1/2 tbsp finely chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled and minced
  • 1 tsp chopped jalapeño pepper


Cilantro-Honey Dressing

Combine all ingredients in a cup. Whisk together to emulsify and taste for seasoning. Adjust if too limey or oily by adding more of either, or by increasing honey. Can be stored in the fridge for up to 3 days.


Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Drizzle with the desired amount of dressing. Add black beans, avocado, and feta to create a main course salad. In the summer, toss in fresh peach slices or cubed watermelon for a delicious variation.

Tasty Tomatoes

Tomatoes are a nutritional powerhouse – offering up a mighty supply of several prized nutrients including vitamin C, beta-carotene, B vitamins, potassium, and fiber. Even more, tomatoes are chock full of potent antioxidant carotenoid pigments, including world famous lycopene. Carotenoids are key players in lowering cancer risk, protecting our hearts and brains, as well as maintaining youthful and healthy skin. Keep in mind that the smaller and the redder the tomato, the greater the concentration of lycopene it offers.
