Paula makes a colorful salad of shoepeg corn, avocado and cherry tomatoes.
Now, I’m going to be starting here with a bag of shoepeg corn. Now, I’ve just thawed this out. I’ve just finished slicing my cherry tomatoes in half. I’m going to dump those in with the corn. I’m going to zest one lime. I’m going to toss it in there. This is so quick and easy to make. Now, I’ve got a purple onion that I have diced up fairly small. We’re going to throw that in there. This reminds me of a Mexican dish. Alright, now we’re going to just cut this in two. Alright, we’re just going to render the juice out of this lime. Alright, there goes the juice and next is our avocado. We’re just going to run the knife around the avocado until I cut completely around it and then I’m going to give it a twist. And then, I’m just going to come in here with my spoon and remove that avocado just like that. Alright, now we’re going to pop the seed out of the other side and do the same thing. When I was running the bag lady, I used to make a avocado chicken salad that was so good. Alright, I’m just going to dice this avocado up, just coarsely dice it. Throw it over in there. Alright, let’s get over here and let’s make the dressing to the salad which is very simple. We’re going to use just a little bit of olive oil and some nice chopped fresh celentro, some salt, and pepper. I’m so proud of my little niece. She’s a beautiful young woman and she’s getting very good in the kitchen which just thrills me to pieces. I’ll tell her and say, “You’re going to be like your Annie if you’re not careful.” Right now, I’m just going to toss these together. Look how beautiful this salad is and so, so simple but it has got a flavor that you just won’t believe. But, that just dress it up for you all today. I’m going to pile it up in this taco shell that I made earlier. Have the swirl, the lime juice makes your mouth say, “Wow!”
