Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp {SF, GF, V}

Tempeh Bacon Lettuce & Tomato Sammies (2)

There’s nothing I enjoy more than summer fruit…

Seriously just wait until watermelon is officially back in season (I’m already partaking…but you know when it’s at it’s best, it’s well…it’s best. DUH).

Roasted Corn Salad

2014-03-30 16.31.16

Summer is upon us and I am SO excited!

Seriously…I am really ready for the sunshine, beach weather, warmth, bonding, vacations and everything that comes with the territory of the season.

One of my FAVORITE things about summer has to be the food.

There are so many goodies in season for summer. Peaches, cherries, corn, greens…I can go on and on and on and on.

Summer is really all about eating cooling foods and I have the recipe to keep you cool and satisfied.

So as soon as you hear your tummy grumbling after reading my recipe, head on over to your closest farmer’s market and grab some goodies!

What You Need: 

2 ears of corn roasted until slightly browned over open flame or grill, kernels removed and set aside (or you can buy the frozen roasted corn from Trader Joe’s, just defrost the entire bag and use in this salad)

2 avocados, cubed

2 vine ripened tomatoes, diced

2 cloves of garlic, smashed and diced

1 shallot, diced

Juice of 1 lime

Handful of cilantro, roughly chopped

Pink Himalayan Sea Salt to taste


How You Make it: 

  1. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Season with salt. Serve.

How easy is that? I think I might need a snack after talking about this…

Off to the fridge!

Peace, love and no beef!
