So Fresh and So Clean Clean!

Let's keep trying to fool ourselves that it's not winter. Another way to do that is to have a light, summer salad.

Romaine, Avocado, and Corn Salad
From Marthastewart.com

1/2 head romaine lettuce, cut into 1/2-inch strips
2 cups fresh corn kernels
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
1 avocado, peeled, pitted, and cubed
1 to 2 Tbs fresh lime juice
1/4 tsp chili powder
Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • In a bowl combine the romaine, corn, and cherry tomatoes.
  • Add 3/4 cup of avocado
  • Place the remaining avocado in a blender along with 1/3 cup water, lime juice, and chili powder
  • Season with salt and pepper
  • Pour dressing over the salad; toss gently
If you want to be really classy, you'll wait to make this salad until the spring or summer (when corn is in season), but if you're like me you will just use frozen. Oh Snap!
