Corn and Cucumber Salad

A simple refreshing salad to serve as a side. What's the special in that you ask. It takes hardly 10 minutes to put together and looks amazing and tastes even more better. There are times when I do this first and keep it on the table for kids to start munching until lunch/ dinner is ready. Check out my Corn Mango salad.

Prep Time: 10 min | Serves: 4

Frozen/ Fresh Corn - 1 Cup
Pickle Cucumbers - 3 (Finely Chopped)
Pomegranate Seeds - 3/4 Cup (Or you can use colored bell peppers)
Lime juice - Juice from half of a lime
Mint leaves - 3 or 4 finely chopped (optional)
Olive Oil - 1/2 tsp.
Salt - 1/2 tsp.
Pepper - 1/2 tsp.

Method of Preparation:
~ Microwave corn for 3 minutes and drain any excess water. Let it cool.
