The recipe is as follows -
2 cups green peas
2 cups corn kernels
1 tsp crushed garlic
1 orange juiced
1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 tsp curry powder
1 tsp black pepper
1/2 cup orange segments or pulp
salt to taste
1) If you are using fresh peas or corn, you will need to blanch them first. Boil a pot of water and dunk the peas/corn in the boiling water for 2 minutes. Drain and set aside.
2) Prepare the dressing - Squeeze the orange along with the pulp, mix in lemon/lime juice. Add the salt, pepper and curry powder and crushed garlic. Whisk this and add to the corn and peas.
3) Depending on how juicy your orange is, you may add more orange juice if needed. This salad gets tastier with time.
4) Refrigerate at least overnight for the flavors to develop. Serve as a side dish, or use as filling for sandwiches or wraps.
This is a healthy treat you can indulge in. The citrus dressing takes the ordinary corn and peas to a whole new level. If you love the orange element here, be sure to try my Orange couscous salad.
