I havent blogged for a while, frankly it's been really boring around here, mainly because Im so miserable from this heat and humidity that Im not doing a dang thing exciting, I hadn't even left the house in 3 days, only reason I went out today was for the dreaded mammogram. Anyways, I managed to stop by the store to pick up a few things to make this salad I had been wanting to make for a while, I saw it on Paula Deen's show.....and omg it is sooo yummy you NEED to make it!!!!!!
Here's what you need:
2 cups of corn, I used fresh corn, cut it off the cob, and just boiled it for a few minutes, you want it kind of crunchy.
1/2 a red onion chopped'
a couple tablespoons of cilantro chopped up
cherry tomatos halved, OR I used a tomato from my garden and just diced it.
Now mix all that up in a bowl......and the dressing is so simple, a couple of tablespoons of evoo, juice from a lime, I used 2 limes,I like lime.. zest from one of the limes, salt, I use kosher, and fresh ground pepper......mix it all up, its so freah and yummy, I ate so much! I served it with grilled chicken, I also think it would be good with fish, or some grilled brats. The perfect summer side dish....
Hopefully the next few weeks will be more exciting, and cooler.....Sharon's pajama party is coming up and I heard there will be contests........and if you know Sharon, well, no need to say any more.......so that will be one of the highlights of summer!
Then right after that Im heading to CT.....I need to spend some time with my oldest, and see her new house. I even get to spend some time with Glenni....I can't wait to see them!!!!
Here's wishing you cooler days than Im having!!!!!
