THIS WEEK'S CRAVINGS #37 (Blueberries) and Corn & Blueberry Salad

The Theme is: Blueberries
(Please share with us only recipes with BLUEBERRIES!)
We enjoyed a beautiful pool party yesterday with our Pace family. All of the girls had a wonderful time and even my little guy had a great time with a few of his friends.
Friends, Family, Summer, Sunshine and Good Food = ONE WONDERFUL SUMMER!!!

This blueberry salad was something I cut out from my magazine Better Homes and Gardens over a year ago. I knew I would find a time to make it and today with our blueberry theme, this recipe finally came in handy. And it was quite delicious.

Corn and Blueberry Salad
from Better Homes and Garden

6 ears corn, husked
1 cup fresh blueberries
1 small cucumber, sliced
1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and finely chopped*
2 tbsp. lime juice
2 tbsp. olive oil
1 tbsp. honey
1/2 tsp. ground cumin

In Dutch oven bring salted water to boiling. Add corn. Cook, covered, 5 minutes, or until tender. When cool enough to handle, cut corn from cobs.

In a serving bowl combine corn, blueberries, cucumber, red onion, cilantro, and jalapeño. For dressing, in screw-top jar combine lime juice, oil, honey, cumin, and 1/2 tsp. salt. Cover; shake well to combine. Add to salad; toss. Cover and refrigerate overnight (up to 24 hours).
