"Because sometimes you just have to go with what you have in the fridge. I call it the fridge challenge: 5 ingredients and I gotta make something with them. Well, I did just that, and bam! The end result was this healthy, light, and easy salad."


Total Servings: 4


  • 2 cups corn (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
  • 1/4 cup Monterey Jack cheese, cubed
  • 2 scallions, white and green parts, sliced thinly
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 0 Salt and pepper to taste


  1. In a medium pan, on medium heat, heat the oil.
  2. Add the scallions and garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  3. Add the corn, oregano, cumin, and tomatoes and cook until the tomatoes are just soft, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat.
