Charred Corn, Tomatoes, Melons, Red Onion, and Jalapeños. This Kind of Sums it Up Nicely.
I couldn’t think of a more apt title for this recipe. It’s a combination of cantaloupe, watermelon, papaya, tomatoes, charred corn, jalapeños, and red onion. I made a dressing of lime juice, calamansi vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper. Topped it with some mint leaves and called it done.
I love these kinds of salads where each bite contains something exciting. This really upped the ante of an otherwise simple meal of grilled sausages and some nice warm rolls. You can go with my vegetable and fruit suggestions, or add whatever strikes your fancy. The only absolutes are the charred corn and tomatoes.
Since the grill was already going for the sausages, it was a no brainer to add a couple ears of corn. I had all the other fruits and vegetables chopped and ready to go. As soon as the corn cooled enough for me to be able to cut it off the cob, I added it to the salad and dinner was served. Pretty easy and so good.
