Simple Corn Salad
You know that we watch FoodTV on Saturday and Sunday mornings, right? I mean, really, doesn't everyone have a tv in the bedroom AND kitchen??
Ok. Maybe not. But you should! This recipe was pulled from Trisha Yearwood's FoodTV episode ...
It's like a lot of other recipes I have, but once again, something triggered my attention enough to make me go online and look up the basic recipe ... and here is what we did!
1 can regular yellow corn, drained
1 can white corn, drained
1 small can diced green chilies, drained
1 small can sliced black olives, drained
2 tomatoes, rough chopped
2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and chopped
4 green onions, sliced thin
3 tbs vinegar
1/3 c olive oil
zest of half a lime (zest your lime before you squeeze!)
juice of half a lime
1/4 tsp salt
1 tbs chopped cilantro
Mix all except cilantro in medium size bowl and chill for a minimum of 1 hour. Prior to serving stir well and add the cilantro.
Now, there are several things you can do with this little gem of a dish:
Add to tacos!
Add to a rice bowl (ohhh, just. like. Chipotles!)
Or, you can just grab some yummy tortilla chips and dip away like a crazy lady ... uh huh ...
Seriously, something so simple taste this great! Go ahead, give it a try!
