Radicchio Sweet Corn Salad

Sweet corn and tangy feta cheese complement the bitter bite of radicchio in this colorful salad. It’s simple to make in minutes for a quick side dish alongside grilled or roasted meats. It’s also enjoyable as an easy lunch with your favorite soup. In winter, substitute fresh sweet corn kernels with thawed frozen or canned.

1 ½ cups yellow sweet corn
½ tsp. fine sea salt
¼ tsp. ground black pepper
1 small head radicchio, sliced
2 T crumbled feta cheese
