This dinner salad is a perfect summer dish, though you can make it any time of year with frozen sweet corn. If Cotija cheese, a Mexican-style crumbly cheese, isn't available, try crumbled goat cheese.

  • For dressing, in a food processor or blender combine cilantro, oil, chile peppers, shallots, vinegar, garlic, and salt. Cover and process or blend until nearly smooth. Drizzle dressing over vegetables; toss well to coat. Sprinkle with cheese. Serve immediately.


Because chile peppers contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes, avoid direct contact with them as much as possible. When working with chile peppers, wear plastic or rubber gloves. If your bare hands do touch the peppers, wash your hands and nails well with soap and warm water.
