I absolutely love when fresh corn season comes around so I can enjoy this incredible tasting yet ridiculously simple recipe. I dream about this dish all winter long. It is imperative you use fresh corn, as frozen or canned corn will not do this dish justice. I always add chick peas to this dish to give it more texture and flavor but it's tasty without it as well.
Sweet Corn and Spicy Jalapeño Salad
1 ear fresh corn, husked and the kernels shaved off the cob
1 large jalapeño, stems and seeds removed, finely diced
2 tbsp high quality extra virgin olive oil or 3 tbsp if using chick peas

1 1/2 tsp fresh ground pepper
1 1/2 cups of cooked chick peas or 1 can drained and rinsed (optional)
1. Toss all ingredients together Adjust oil, salt and pepper according to personal taste
