Corn Salad with Lime-Cilantro Dressing

July 17, 2013

In the middle of summer, when the temp's are high for weeks at a time, I like to make simple dinners. No need in heating up the house and we don't really feel like eating hot food much anyway. We find salads to be one of the most refreshing parts of the meal and this salad is out of this world - especially when using freshly picked veggies. It's simple, allowing the seasonal veggies and cilantro to stand on their own. 

And then there's the end of summer when I'm trying to figure out how to best use up the plethora of tomatoes remaining in my garden.  Corn is winding down and we're getting ready to put the garden to bed, and this is so fresh and bright tasting.

It's even more special when I have leftover grilled corn-on-the-cob. When I'm grilling corn I'll usually grill a few extra ears, cut the cooked kernels off the cob, and use it in this salad. If you find you would like a little more citrus, zest a bit of the lime and toss it in.

2 cups of cooked corn
1 avocado, peeled, pitted and diced into 1/2 inch pieces
1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
1/3 cup finely diced red onion
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1 Tablespoon fresh lime juice
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper

In a medium bowl, combine the corn, avocado, cherry tomatoes and onion.

In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lime juice, cilantro, salt and pepper. Add the dressing to the salad and toss gently to mix. Eat right away or allow to sit for a few hours so the flavors meld.

Slow-Cooker "Baked" Potatoes

February 22, 2018

My husband is not a baked potato fan. He's made that very clear. Several times..... He is, however, a huge fan of twice baked potatoes. So I've found the perfect compromise since I do appreciate a good baked potato. I scoop out his potato and mix it with a little butter, milk, and cheese (as I would for a twice baked potato), but I don't bake it a second time. Instead, I spoon it back into the...

Freezer Cooking 101: A Beginner's Guide Part 1 of 3

February 21, 2018

This is the first of a 3-part series on Freezer Cooking.  I got hooked on freezer cooking a couple of years ago.  While we don't eat the majority of our meals as freezer meals, I love counting on them at least once or twice a week as well as having a meal or two extra that's handy if I've forgotten to take something out.  

Finding ways to simplify mealtime has become incredibly popular, and for...
