What better time to share this simple salad recipe then when the farmer’s markets, roadside stands, and grocery stores (if you must!), are brimming with tender ears of sweet corn. I created this recipe last year after learning from a local farmer that you can eat sweet corn raw without it ever touching a grill or a pot of boiling water. I was able to convert many naysayers last summer, and now it’s time for me to make a believer out of you!
So I am pretty much a low fat raw foodist, but when it comes to salads, I just won't eat them without some kind of oil. Also I had some umeboshi plum paste that is rarely used in recipes unless you create your own so I did. The paste itself, for those of you who have never used it, is very flavorful. It's salty so you don't need much at all, and tart, it adds ZING. This dressing was enough to dress 1 salad so i eyeballed the ingredients like i always would put oil on my salad so im sorry i dont have exactness but it was a pretty big salad! I looked up the health benefits of Ume plums if anyone is interested here a website: http://www.naturalimport.com/health_benefits_of_umeboshi
