Shallot-Corn Salad with a Brown Sugar Lemonade Vinaigrette

I really miss cooking - and it helps to heal me. So, this afternoon I made a Shallot-Corn Salad. I adapted this from Heidi Swanson's 101 Cookbooks Summer Corn Salad recipe.

- 4 ears of raw corn
- 1 large shallot, minced
- 4 tbsp brown sugar
- juice of 1 lemon
- white vinegar combined with the lemon juice to make 1/3 cup
- olive oil whisked with the lemon juice mixture to make a dressing
- 3/4 cups of sunflower seeds
- 1 tsbp dried oregano
- 1/2 tsp celtic sea salt

Mix and enjoy. I'm actually rather surprised at how very good it is.
