Three Sisters Salad

Ingredients

  • 2 cups Iroquois Hulled White Corn, cooked
  • ¼ cup apple cider vinegar
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • 1 red pepper, chopped
  • 1 green pepper, chopped
  • 2 onions, minced
  • 4 tomatoes, chopped

  2. In a large bowl, mix the remaining vegetables together while the corn, beans, and squash are still warm. In a separate bowl, mix vinegar, oil, cilantro, garlic, salt, and pepper. Pour marinade over vegetable mixture and gently toss.
  3. Let the salad marinate at least two hours before serving - overnight works best.
