As for the romaine lettuce, it should be cut into 1-2 inch slices.
After that, steam the Japanese sweet corn for about 10 minutes, then peel off the corns into a bowl and add in some butter/ margarine and pinch of salt to taste. Stir well.
Once the sweet corns are well-prepared, mix them in the salad bowl together with the raisins. Cut the lemon into half and squeeze it to get the lemon juice on top of the salad. Remember to use a small spoon to hold the lemon seeds from dropping into the salad mixture.
On top of the lemon juice, add in of olive oil and apple cider with honey to the bowl, stir them well. Try the salad out and if you feel that it is not sour enough, add in more lemon juice. Otherwise, if you feel it is not sweet enough you can add in some honey as well. It is all customized to suit your taste.
