Late Summer means an abundance of garden veggies! This easy vegetarian salad uses cucumbers, cocktail tomatoes and that pesky single ear of corn that we all have leftover after a backyard barbecue. A spicy-sweet lime-jalapeño dressing gives this recipe some kick along with a healthy dose of olive oil which has all kinds of health benefits we encourage you to learn more about by CLICKING HERE. We recommend using Little Leaf Farms Baby Red & Green Leaf Mix as the base for this salad. Recipe and photos by Liz Harris of Floating Kitchen.

Whisk together all the ingredients for the dressing in a small bowl. Set aside.

Add the tomatoes, corn kernels and sliced cucumber to a medium bowl. Pour in the dressing and toss gently to combine.

Divide the salad greens between serving plates. Then spoon the tomato mixture over top. Enjoy immediately.
