Corn and Blueberry Salad with Spicy Mango Dressing



This is one of those salads that started out simple and escalated from there. I had a ripe mango, so I made a nice spicy mango dressing. Then I noticed a couple ears of leftover corn and a container of blueberries in the fridge. That’s when things started clicking.

After removing the corn from the cobs and combining them in a bowl with the blueberries, I added some dark red kidney beans for protein (and a lovely color contrast) along with a chopped cucumber, sliced carrot, a couple minced scallions, and some cilantro (although I’m sure, parsley, basil, or tarragon would be equally lovely).

I can tell you this wonderful summer salad tasted even better than it looks!

Here’s the dressing recipe — in addition to using it on salads, it makes a yummy dipping sauce for spring rolls.

Spicy Mango Dressing

3 tablespoons mango juice or mango puree
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon agave nectar
1 tablespoon minced fresh cilantro
1 tablespoon minced scallions
1/2 teaspoon sriracha sauce (or more, to taste)
1/4 teaspoon salt
Combine all the ingredients in a small bowl. Stir to blend.

This sounds like a fantastic summer combo and a very satisfying salad.

BTW: just wanted to let you know that I received the AVK cookbook yesterday; can't wait to try some recipes...

Thanks again for the contest and the book!
 
Yum...that sounds and looks delicous!
 
It is such a pretty salad.
 
What a beautiful salad! The mango dressing sounds like it will go perfectly with the blueberries and corn.
 
woww very nice salad
thank you
 
So beautiful!
 
I think that is the prettiest salad I have ever seen.
 
Wow, lots of colors! I like the idea of having corn and blueberries and kidney beans in the salad all at once, combined with a fruity dressing. :) It's creative and sounds good.
 
that looks like the ultimate summer salad! so bright and summery!
 
Ooo this looks great! The perfect salad for summer!
 
That's so pretty. I also wanted to say I'm looking forward to your party vegan book - that looks right up my alley.
 
I copied your recipe :) and it was a success, my whole family love the spicy mango dressing. It's new to us and the taste is awesome.

I don't know if I could have my own combination for ingredients that would complement each other.
