We bought some fresh corn, tomatoes and avocados this weekend at a local farmer’s market.  I tossed in some jalapeno peppers and a couple lemons in order to pull together my vision of a fresh salad/slaw. This slaw (or salad) is a great source of fiber, vitamin C, potassium and other vitamins,minerals and phytochemicals.

Here’s the recipe.

3 ears of corn – roasted, cooled and cut from the cob
