Sweet corn salad with shiitake mushrooms, roasted walnuts and white truffle oil

Sweet corn salad with shiitake mushrooms and roasted walnuts

This salad is all about the deliciousness of sweet summer corn, but it also builds a bridge towards the fall season. Here the sweet corn is tossed with deeply flavorful, almost meaty mushrooms. We’ll also add roasted walnuts for another layer of savory flavor, in addition to their nuttiness.

The walnut oil is absolutely key here, too. I recommend the stunning oil from La Tourangelle. Their roasted walnut oil is made following 150-year-old traditional methods, and every spoonful tastes as rich and nutty as can be.

The combination of flavors in this exquisite salad is truly magical… Bon appétit!

A fine gourmet sweet corn recipe, Viviane. I too love walnut oil…it makes a big difference, esp. in salads.
