Cooking and entertaining has always been a big part of my life, whether I'm cooking dinner for family, friends, or a fund raiser for the grandkids or celebrating holidays, food is always a huge part of my world.
I enjoy people, and love to bless others with my hospitality. Thank you for visiting my kitchen today, and I hope you find something good to eat!
Well summer is almost over, but here in California we still can get good corn on the cob. We eat a lot of corn all summer since it's such a versatile vegetable. We barbecue it on the cob, use in a great variety of soups, but I really love it in salad. So here is a recipe that's easy, tasty and fun to add to an outdoor dinner party.
SUMMER CORN, TOMATO AND AVOCADO SALAD
6 ears of corn with the kernels removed 4 cups of grape tomatoes sliced in half 1 1/2 pound mozzarella cubed 3 medium avocados, diced
2 Cups packed fresh cilantro 3/4 Cup Olive Oil 4 T. fresh lime juice 2 t. finely grated lime juice 1 1/2 T. sugar Salt and pepper to taste
Add all the dressing ingredients in a blender and process until smooth. Combine all the salad ingredients in a large bowl and toss with the dressing. Let is set for several hours in the frig before serving so all the flavors come together.
I'm so blessed to have such a great family and friends to share my cooking with. It really brings me such joy. This is simple, easy and your guests will love it. This salad is great with a barbecue and we all still have time before our cold weather arrives. I hope that you give it try. Enjoy!
