making corn salad with the kids at Leslieville Farmer’s Market

Kid’s Corn Salad

3 cobs of cooked corn, kernels removed

1 small cucumber, diced

1 red pepper, diced

1 yellow zucchini, diced

1 green zucchini, diced

1 small red onion, diced

3 small tomatoes, diced

sprigs of fresh thyme, minced

3 tbsp olive oil

1 tbsp apple cider vinegar (use this instead of regular white vinegar because ACV is health promoting and a very good digestive aid. Use one with ‘mother’, such as Braggs or Filsinger’s – if you want more info on this, come visit me at the market, at the kid’s table and I can explain it in more detail)

2 cloves garlic, minced (optional)

Add everything to a large bowl and toss gently or do it à la Leslieville Market and add all the ingredients to a plastic bag and gently massage to incorporate all the ingredients.

We like the bag method because kids love adding all the ingredients to the bag and doing the massaging!

Seems that when kids make it – they eat it and love it! (some kids ate 3 bowls!)

Have you been to the Leslieville Farmer’s Market this year? Tell me what you think about the farmer’s, vendors, kids’ table, or your experience – I’d love to hear your feedback!
