Serves: 2 servings
For the corn
  • 4 ears corn on the cob
  • 2 tbsp white sugar
  • ½ lemon, juiced
For the salad:
  • 6 cups curly kale, washed and dried
  • 10-12 strawberries, hulled and halved
  • 2 white peaches, cored and cubed
  • 1 avocado, cubed
  • ¼ cup roasted and salted pistachios
  • 4-6 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, divided
  • 4 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 lemon, juiced, divided
  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • Freshly cracked black pepper, to taste
For the corn:
  1. Bring 4 quarts of water to a boil. Once it boils, mix in 2 tbsp white sugar and squeeze in the juice of half a lemon. Turn heat off, add in the corn, close with a lid and allow corn to cook for 10 mins. Drain and set corn aside to cool completely, and once cool, cut kernels off cob.
For the salad:
  1. Massage kale with 2 tbsp olive oil, juice of half a lemon and a pinch of sea salt. This will soften the kale. Top it off with the rest of the ingredients. Drizzle remaining olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and salt and pepper. Sprinkle pistachios, toss and serve.
*If you are 100% Paleo and don't eat corn, just sub the corn with roasted sweet'll be just as tasty and satisfying!
