White Sangria

I know it’s only Monday, but it’s never to early to start planning for the weekend.  This Sangria recipe has a nice fruity flavor but is not overly sweet… which can be dangerous because it’s easy to go back for more.

Fresh Corn Salad

As Summer sadly comes to an end, this salad is the perfect pick-me-up because it’s based around the end of Summer’s finest harvest – corn!

INGREDIENTS

  • 6 ears of corn
  • 1 can black beans
  • 1/2 large English cucumber
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes (1 cup red, 1 cup yellow)
  • 1/4 cup red onion (or more if desired)
  • Cilantro
FRESH LIME VINAIGRETTE
    • 2 limes
    • Olive oil
    • White balsamic vinegar
    • Cayenne pepper to taste
    • Garlic powder to taste
    • Salt to taste

HOW TO MAKE IT

  • Cook the corn (boiling or grilling both work – be sure not to overcook), and then cut the corn off the cob
  • Strain and rinse the black beans
  • Peel the cucumber, chop into small pieces
  • Wash the tomatoes and and cut them in half
  • Finely chop the red onion
  • Wash and chop a handful of fresh cilantro
  • Combine all of the ingredients, mix well and then prepare the dressing – afterward, pour it over the salad, mix and enjoy!
FRESH LIME VINAIGRETTE
    • In a small bowl, start by whisking together the juice of one and 1/2  limes, 1/4 cup of olive oil, 1/4 cup of white balsamic vinegar and the cayenne pepper, garlic powder and salt to taste
    • For me, making a salad dressing is all about tasting it and making adjustments — start with that foundation and adjust the rest of the ingredients to your taste
