Lallee's Salad

I know you all remember the recipe swap. Well Lallee over at Lallee's Cottage left a comment with the recipe for a quick and easy veggie salad that I tried the other day and it just knocked my socks off! I have eaten this every day for the past 4 days and I cant get enough. This goes in the permanent file. It is super easy, colorful (I can't wait to take it to the next potluck!) healthy, (I have lost 3 pounds since I started eating mostly this for meals, seriously!) crunchy and so good!
Here is the recipe:
1 can corn drained ( I used frozen, didn't cook it, didnt even thaw it!)
1 red pepper diced
1 cucumber, seeded and diced,
1 tomato, seeded and diced,
2 celery sticks diced
Mix with creamy italian dressing, or garlic ceasar like I did, or ranch, or whatever creamy dressing you like, it will all be good.

Mix it together. Don't you love how it looks in my Target clearance bowl? I got this salad bowl a couple years ago and I love the bright blue.

Serve with grilled chicken, or just about anything else you can think of. I can't wait until fresh sweet corn and homegrown tomatoes come into season. Oh Lordy, I will be living on this stuff!
Enjoy. You're going to love it. Thanks Lallee!

  4. Kathy, that does look YUMMY! Today I drove two hours to meet another blogger....while in South Carolina (I Live in North Carolina), we saw so many produce stands selling fresh LOCAL corn! Our corn in NC doesn't come in for about 2-3 more weeks. Anyway, we stopped at a stand. I bought corn and local tomatoes. Had both for dinner tonight and they were sooo GOOD!!!!

    Thanks for stopping by...and I, too, wish I had somewhere to wear all the pretty dresses. I should have probably been born in the 19th century...better "dressy" period.

  32. I made the salad and I really like it. Get this - my husband who WILL NOT eat tomatoes took a big helping and ate it (thinking the tomatoes were red peppers, I'm sure) and said he thought it was a pretty good salad. I didn't tell him but it came out later that he had eaten the "horrible" tomatoes. Well, since then he's had it knowing there are tomatoes in it. Could this be transforming?
