And Now For The Recipe:

 

GRILLED CORN SALAD RECIPE: 


4 ears of corn grilled or (what I used) 2 bags of Trader Joe’s Roasted Corn, that you’ll find in the freezer section. 
1 small green bell pepper diced 
1 small yellow bell pepper diced 
2 cans of organic black beans, rinsed and drained 
2 cups organic cherry tomatoes, halved
1 small red onion, diced (@ 1/2 cup) 
2 avocados, diced 
1/4 cup cilantro
Let roasted bags of corn thaw for an hour then sauté in a pan on the stovetop. I used a very thin coat of “Light” Olive Oil Spray on the bottom of the pan, or you can use vegetable stock if you want a “no oil” recipe. After cooking corn, let cool for about 20 minutes. In a large bowl, mix the bell peppers, beans, tomatoes, red onions, and roasted corn and mix thoroughly. Scoop the contents into a platter and spread evenly. Now add the 2 cups of diced avocados and the 1/4 cup of cilantro, spreading on top over the salad. Also, cut lime wedges and place around the platter and add a couple on top.

CREAMY CILANTRO LIME DRESSING RECIPE:


1/4 cup unsweetened vegan yogurt
1/2 avocado, diced 
1 cup cilantro 
fresh juice of 1 lime 
1 teaspoon of agave 
1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder 
1/2 teaspoon of cumin 
fresh cracked pepper to taste 
1/2 teaspoon of Himalayan salt 
1/3 to 1/2 cup of filtered alkaline water
Blend all ingredients in a Nutribullet or food processor. Pour into a sauce bowl so when people are taking their portions, they can pour the dressing according to how much they like. 

 

ENJOY!
