This salad is vegan, fresh and easy to make. I chose ingredients with bright colors – they remind me of Spring and Easter. Although this salad stands on its own, it’s great when served alongside any meat or seafood dish at Easter or other occasion.
Prep time: 15-20 minutes
1 large carrot, peeled & julienned (cut into matchsticks)
2 Persian cucumbers, peeled & julienned
2 celery stalks, peeled & julienned
1 medium-large tomato, cut in half, pulp discarded & flesh julienned
1/4 of a red onion, thinly sliced into strips
1/2 teaspoon finely chopped Serrano Chile
1/2 cup corn kernels (canned & drained)
1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves, washed & patted dry with paper towels
4 to 5 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
juice from 1 lemon
salt and ground black pepper, to taste
1. In a large glass or porcelain serving bowl, combine carrot, cucumbers, celery, tomato, onion, Serrano Chile, corn and half of the cilantro together.
2. Add the olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper; toss. Taste and adjust seasonings.
3. Garnish with remaining cilantro leaves. Serve immediately.
