I love a salad that I learned to make in the Beaujolais many years ago. It is the only way I ever saw sweet corn eaten in France!
Dice a cooked beet, add about the same amount of fresh or frozen corn and some sliced Belgian endive.
Make a thick vinaigrette with lots of Dijon mustard, red wine vinegar, vegetable oil (whatever you like), some garlic if you like. Toss with the vegetables. Good cold or at room temperature.
It is a nice combination of sweet, hot, crunchy, bitter.
Layered Russian Salad from the New Midwestern Table cookbook.
Mandarin oranges / cooked beets/ creamy poppyseed dressing (or other sweet dressing). Simple combo that's good alone or on top of salad greens.
