not-grilled corn salad

Adapted heavily from Simply Recipes' grilled corn salad, partly because we don't have a grill. If you do, maybe check her original recipe, which has lots of different instructions and ingredients... I'm just going to write what I did below.

8 ears of shucked raw corn, sliced off the cob
1 gigantic zucchini, sliced relatively thin and cut into half moons
half an onion, chopped very fine
4 scallions, chopped
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
about 2 t cumin
2 T olive oil
2 T apple cider vinegar
crumbly salty cheese
salt and pepper

Heat the olive oil and cumin and add the zucchini. Saute until it's soft, but not falling apart. Remove and set aside.

Don't add more oil to the pan, but do add the corn and onion. Saute until the corn begins to brown but is still pretty hard. Mine sort of popped a little.

Add to the zucchini.

Add all the rest of the ingredients except the cheese and mix well.

Then let the whole thing cool. Do not skip this step or your cheese will melt and you might be sad.

Then add crumbly salty cheese (I used a little feta and a little goat).

Then eat it.

Then yay!
