Corn and Watercress Salad

Source: Everyday Food, June 2004


  • 3 ears corn
  • 1 English cucumber
  • 1 small red onion
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1 bunch watercress
  • 3 tablespoons red-wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper


  1. Cook corn in a pot of boiling salted water until crisp-tender, 8 to 12 minutes. Run under cold water to cool completely. Slice off kernels with a sharp knife.

  2. Peel strips from cucumber, quarter lengthwise, and thinly slice crosswise. Combine in a large bowl with tomatoes, watercress, trimmed and torn into bite-size pieces, and cooked corn kernels.

  3. Just before serving, drizzle with vinegar and olive oil, season with coarse salt and ground pepper, and toss.
