A recipe of mixed salad that will delight the whole family.
This Thai salad is made of corn and shrimp… and many other things of course!
What I like in the salad is that we can put a little everything that we like… A kind of “Fouzitou” as would say Madame Le Pic…
But whatever the composition of my salad, I always pour a box of corn.
This brings crunchy, fondant, gourmand, sweet, freshness. And especially because I love these small yellow grains that also bring color to the salad. And as we eat first with the eyes. I think it’s important to have a nice composition on the plate.
I’ll talk to you after the recipe for Green Giant Corn … just to know what you eat.

Coming straight from Central America, corn was the basic ingredient of Native Americans.
He appeared at religious ceremonies and also served as currency, jewelry, fuel and even building material.
In 1492, Christopher Columbus brought corn back to Europe.
Since the 17th century, corn is grown in France.
Géant Vert arrived in France in 1960, and since then has grown sweet corn in France (in the Landes and the Atlantic Pyrenees) with 300 partner farmers and without GMOs.
It is harvested between July and September after reaching its perfect maturity.
The products are packaged in steel cans or 100% recyclable glass jars 8 hours after being harvested.
The novelties of the brand:
On the boxes you can see the portraits of the partner farmers. It is a tribute to their work.
This year, Estelle Tanière and Jean-Michel Durand and their corn certified from France Garantie are on the boxes.
For more info, their site is very well done.
