Rainbow Matchstick Salad


In the summer months, when Shabbos afternoons are long, Shalosh Seudos becomes a more formal meal in our house. We often gather together with family, putting together a kind of potluck meal. Instead of preparing all the dishes before Shabbos, I usually make sure to have a variety of components ready in the fridge to pull together some dishes last minute. This will almost always include a cooked starch, corn on the cob, and assorted fruits and vegetables that can be enjoyed raw in salads. This salad came together one Shabbos afternoon, and I enjoyed it enough that I’ve been repeating it often. I hope it’ll become a regular for you as well!


1. Cut the corn off the cob and combine with the remaining vegetables in a large salad bowl.
2. Combine all dressing ingredients in a separate bowl. Dress salad just before serving.

Tips: My preferred cooking method for corn is to add corn to boiling water and cook for 10 minutes, then run under cold water to stop the cooking. When I don’t want to dirty a pot or I’m in a rush, I wrap the corn in a damp paper towel and microwave for five minutes. This salad also works on a bed of lettuce.
