Easy Grilled Corn Salad

This is my second corn salad recipe of the summer and I am making no apologies. I love simple salads like this. With the hubby working from home most days, I'm always trying to come up with easy lunch recipes. Most of the time he eats leftovers, but there are days when I actually want to make something.  I had him throw an ear of corn on the grill while I chopped up the tomatoes, avocado, and … [Read more...]

We headed over to prepare an apple filled dinner for my parents. The chicken I made was not worth mentioning, but this salad was great. Filled with all the flavors of fall this is a salad I could … [Read more...]
