Corn and rice salad in corn husk
August 31, 2011 • Category: Salads
Obviously, this salad can be presented in a bowl; in Texas, corn husks are sold everywhere (for folks to make tamales with) and I wanted to use them for fun. You could easily use the fresh husks from the corn after pulling it out.
- 1 cup of rice
- 2 cups of water or broth
- 1 small onion, chopped
- Olive oil as needed
- 1/4 cup of rice vinegar or fresh lemon juice
- 1 pepper, diced
- 4 ears of corn
- 1 cup of soft cheese like feta
- 1/4 cup of chopped herbs like dill or parsley or basil
- 1 tablespoon of red pepper paste
- 1/2 cup of green olives
- Cook the rice by boiling the broth and throwing the rice in it; cool. Chop the onion and the herbs.
- Wet the corn and cook in the microwave for 2 minutes for each ear. Cool and peel.
- Place the rice, chopped onion, herb, diced pepper, pepper paste, corn and olives in a bowl; mix gently to combine.
- Mix 1/4 cup of rice vinegar and 1/2 cup of olive oil. Add to the salad and combine. Serve the salad at room temperature.

I have been making a lot of corn salads this month – but never thought to put them in a husk – what a grand, special idea. I love how rustic it looks and it is just plain fun during corn season.

I always discard the husks when I do buy corns, which is seldom I don’t know why…love corn but basically have not explored the possibilities of using corns in bakes or cooking except just boil and eat them with salt and butter!:P You’ve cooked this salad very beautifully!:)

What a great idea for presenting food! I gives the whole dish a gorgeous late summer BBQ kind of touch. So decorative. The salad itself sounds nice and refreshing, too.

What a great presentation idea. Sadly we don’t see them in the stores here in Australia, but I guess we could just save our own.

I can barely find corn on the cob here, forget the husks…

I think using husks, leaves, skins, nut shells, tree barks and other natural things as vessels for food is incredible. Its beautiful and elegant!
I look at this dish and think of paella, succotash…
