A Better Side Salad: A Refreshing Corn + Mango Slaw

Photo: Heather Christo

The first time I ate raw corn, I was shocked at how sweet and delicious it was. The little kernels burst in my mouth with a perfect little pop!

When you pair raw corn with sweet mango and lots of fresh herbs, sharp red onion, and spicy chili, you get a salad that is absolutely perfect as a side dish or topping for any kind of protein. Frankly, I could just eat this whole bowl with a spoon.
