Comino Corn and Rice Salad

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Acerast

Cheryl and Bill Jamison have some great recipes. This is one from the Border Cookbook and really wakes up your taste buds with the interplay between the sweet corn, salty olives and spicy seasonings. My family loves it in the summer when you can cut the corn right off of the cob. I like to throw it together in the morning before work and serve it for dinner with grilled meats.

Interesting! I loved it, the kids hated it and hubby was so-so. Followed recipe exactly and I liked the unique flavours, but definitely wouldn't be for everyone.
