Corn Salad

I am always on the look out for easy vegetable dishes to take for lunch. When I saw this corn salad in this month's "Everyday Food" I had to try it. I changed up the recipe a little to suit my tastes and what I had on hand. But I think this could be a lunch box staple. I got everything ready the night before and just tossed it together before I left for the lab.

The salad originally had jalapeƱo pepper - but I don't like the heat so I used some green onion. I also used a different dried spice. The dressing was originally lemon - but I had a couple limes so I decided to use lime instead.
