Roasted Corn Salad Recipe Inspired by Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival
Florida’s corn season is just around the corner. I am always on the lookout for dishes that can be turned into healthy, plant based recipes. Disney is not always the best place for healthy food ideas, but they are getting better!
Roasted Corn Salad
- 8 ears corn or 1 28 oz bag of frozen corn
- 2-3 roasted red peppers, diced
- 1 green onion, diced
- 1 green pepper, diced
- 1 cup fresh lime juice
- Optional 1/2 cup plant based mayonnaise *
- Ground black pepper and sea salt, to taste
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place red peppers on sheet pan covered with parchment paper. Roast for 20 minutes then turn peppers to other side and roast another 20 minutes or so until the peppers are softened and slightly charred. After cooling, slice each pepper in half, remove the seeds, cut into strips and peel the pepper.
Heat pan to medium and roast corn for 10-12 minutes until tender.
In a bowl whisk together plant based mayonnaise and lime juice. If you prefer to make your own plant based mayonnaise, please see the instructions below.
Add roasted corn, red peppers, green onion, green pepper and stir well. Season with salt and pepper, if desired. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
* Quick Plant Based Mayonnaise
Combine 12 ounces of silken firm tofu, 1 ½ tbsp. lemon
juice, 1½ tsp apple cider vinegar, 1½ tsp Dijon mustard, 1 tsp stevia in a blender. Blend for approximately 1 minute until smooth. If mayo is too thick, add 1 tsp of nut milk until desired consistency.
