I love a bight-colored dish. This salad was the result of some end-of-the-week fridge rummaging. Everything came together surprisingly well, resulting a vibrant, crunchy, paprika-spiced salad that is as flavorful as it is colorful. —leah.vandeveldt

What You'll Need
  • 2 ears of corn, corn kernels removed from the cob (or 1 1/2 cups frozen corn, thawed)
  • 1/2 a head of a red cabbage, shredded very thin
