Fit For Fall Recipe: Corn & Feta Salad



We are planning to share some of our own tasty recipes as part of our Fit For Fall Series! However, this first recipe was actually stolen from Trader Joe’s! I came across this recipe on their website last week and decided to give it a try since it’s easy to make and is a pretty “clean” side dish with simple ingredients. If you don’t have a Trader Joe’s near you, you can still get these ingredients at your local store. The recipe does taste best with roasted corm, so I would just buy a couple of ears and grill them inside and then remove the kernels for the recipe. If you don’t feel like grilling – you can just use a bag of regular corn….just make sure it’s only corn and doesn’t have any added ingredients. You can also reduce the fat by using non-stick cooking spray vs. butter and a little less feta cheese (although feta is one of the lower-calorie cheeses to begin with).

Spicy Roasted Corn & Feta Salad








  • 1 Tbsp TJ’s Unsalted Butter
  • 1/2 cup diced TJ’s Red Onion
  • 1 package TJ’s Frozen Roasted Corn
  • 1/2 package Pastures of Eden Feta (green & yellow bag)
  • 1/4 cup chopped TJ’s Organic Cilantro
  • 1/4 tsp TJ’s Red Cayenne Pepper
  • 2 TJ’s Limes
  • TJ’s Pepper, to taste

Melt butter in a large frying pan. Saute diced onion for 2-3 minutes until it softens. Add frozen corn and heat 6-7 minutes, until warm. Chop half of the package of feta into small crumbles, it should be about 1 cup. Add feta, cilantro, cayenne pepper and the juice of two limes, to the corn and stir. Add pepper to taste. Serve warm.
