6 ears corn, husked, steamed, (or 16 oz frozen corn, defrosted and steamed)
1–2 Tablespoons chopped jalapeño peppers, fresh or jarred
1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
1–2 Tablespoons fresh cilantro leaves, chopped (or 1 Tablespoon dried)
2 Tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon honey
1/2 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
freshly ground pepper and salt to taste
Option: 1/2 cup feta cheese, crumbled
If using fresh corn, once corn has cooled, slice carefully to remove corn from the ears and place it into a medium-sized serving bowl. Add tomatoes and cilantro. Whisk together red wine vinegar, honey, olive oil, red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper. Pour over the corn mixture and stir well. Option: top with feta cheese and fresh cilantro. Serve warm or at room temperature. Taste the summer goodness, no matter the season. Makes 5–6 half-cup servings.
2 pounds chicken combo (wings, legs, boneless, skinless chicken breasts, etc)
1/4 cup soy sauce, low sodium

1 teaspoon fresh ginger, minced
2 Tablespoons dark brown sugar

Whisk together soy sauce through salt in a small bowl. Marinate the chicken combination in the marinade for 1–2 hours or overnight, turning frequently.
Preheat the grill (or oven to 350 degrees). Grill chicken for 5–6 minutes per side, depending on chicken pieces (check frequently for wings). If baking, place chicken in a 9 x 13-inch baking pan. Bake for 30–40 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through, basting during the last 15 minutes of cooking time. Makes 4–5 servings.
