Green and Blueberry Salad August 18, 2009
This summer has been hotter than hell. I have been craving refreshing salads.
This weekend I came up with this simple goody (also blueberries are only $1.99 in Austin right now).
Green and Blueberry Salad
3 Cups Spring Greens
3/4 Cup Blueberries
1/4 Cup Raisins
1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
1/2 Tablespoon Balsamic Vinegar
1/2 Tablespoon Raspberry Vinegar
1/2 Tablespoon Flax seeds
Combine greens, blueberries and raisins in a large bowl.
In a separate bowl, mix oil, vinegars and flax seed as the dressing.
Pour dressing over salad and mix thoroughly.
You are finished! Hooray, time to enjoy your salad with a friend.
A Summer Lunch: Corn and Black Bean Salad July 12, 2009
Today for lunch I decided to make a variation on a recipe I found in the Daily Texan. Here’s what I made:
Corn and Black Bean Salad:
2 ears of fresh corn, husked
Juice of 1 Lime
1 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1/2 tsp. salt
Freshly ground pepper to taste
1 15-oz can black beans, rinsed
1 C shredded red cabbage
1 large tomato, diced
1/4 C minced red onion
2 fake chicken patties (optional, or use real chicken)
2 C salad greens
1. Steam corn, either by putting the corn about 1 inch water in a shallow microwave safe container and heat in microwave for 5 mins. or in a steamer tray on the stove.
2. When cool enough to handle, cut the kernels from the cob with a knife.
3. Whisk lime juice, oil, salt and pepper in a bowl. Add the corn, beans, cabbage, tomato and onion and toss to coat. Refrigerate until ready to serve on top of salad greens. Top with fake chicken heated following directions on package.
In my boyfriend’s words “This is a great summer meal!”
