Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes

Ingredients
  

  • 1 medium-sized zucchini
  • 1 ear of corn steamed or cooked with kernels removed
  • Fresh basil leaves
  • 3-4 ripe fresh figs
  • Red cabbage shredded for garnish
  • 1 fresh turmeric root grated

Instructions
 

  • Start by using a vegetable peeler to slice the zucchini into thin ribbons.
  • Carefully slice the corn kernels off the cob into a large bowl.
  • Add the zucchini ribbons, fresh basil leaves, and a handful of shredded red cabbage to the bowl. Gently toss these ingredients together.
  • Halve the fresh figs and, in a hot frying pan with a teaspoon of olive oil, sauté them face down for just one minute until they caramelize slightly.
  • Arrange the caramelized figs on top of the mixed vegetables.
  • Finish off the salad with a sprinkle of fresh grated turmeric.
  • Drizzle the salad with your preferred dressing; homemade balsamic dressing works wonderfully, but feel free to use any sauce or vinaigrette of your choice.
  • If fresh turmeric is not available, you can use thinly sliced carrots as a colorful garnish.
