This is the a major crowd pleaser and super easy salad. It always amazed me how both kids and adults go crazy for it. Serve over basmati rice, and you're good to go!

  • 1 cup corn kernels (use fresh or canned)
  • ¼ cup pomegranate seeds
  • 1 tablespoon poppy seeds
  • 3 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon toasted sesame oil

  • pinch of kosher salt
