Corn relish

This is one of my favorite recipes.  I originally found this in an issue of House Beautiful years and years ago.  I have adapted it over the years to my own liking!   Besides orange chocolate chippers, this is the recipe I am asked for most often. It's really delicious, and you get a huge serving of your daily veggies.  It does take a little time with all of the chopping, but it's well worth it!


Fresh corn kernels removed from 6 ears of corn

3 medium stalks celery diced

2 large carrots, diced

1 red bell pepper diced

1/2 to 2/3 of a red onion, diced depending on how much onion you like

1 bunch green onions sliced

Apple cider vinegar

Olive oil

Salt and pepper to taste

Place corn kernels, red onion, celery, red pepper, and carrots in a large pot of boiling water and blanch for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes.  Remove and quickly plunge vegetables into a large bowl of iced water to shock, and stop the cooking process.  Drain vegetables in a colander and return to a large clean bowl.  

Mix dressing.  1 part apple cider vinegar to 3 parts olive oil.  Make just enough to coat the vegetables.  Toss vegetable with dressing and chopped green onion, season with salt and pepper to taste.  Chill in the refrigerator.  This lasts several days!

    Mmm looks gorgeous and yummy! I make something very similar but have never tried blanching them first. I bet the flavors come together better that way.

    Blanching them is great–especially for the corn, it gets rid of the white starchy stuff.

    I’m a veggie and moving to Uni at the end of the week, so I may give this recipe a spin as it’ll be pretty inexpensive too. Thanks!
