Grilled Corn and Brown Rice SaladPosted: July 28, 2012
It’s Saturday….and it’s late!
Have you caught Olympic fever yet? We’ve had a busy, busy day (more on that tomorrow), but we’re finally home for the night (yep, we’re maybe a little lame….it’s not really that “late”) and I’m totally mesmerized by the swimming and gymnastic events.
So last night….
I made a little salad to accompany our grilled burgers (veggie and not). It was inspired by a post I saw on Iowa Girl Eats this week, a barley corn salad.
My salad is a verrrry loose interpretation of what you see on IGE….we ate later, after the kids went to bed, so I didn’t take the time to make that yummy tomato vinaigrette. When I make this next time, though, I will.
Here’s what I did:
All of the flavors….the grilled corn crunch, the fresh tomatoes, onions, and herbs, the nutty rice….perfection. I had to have seconds even though I probably didn’t need it. I love having so many fresh ingredients this time of year to piece together for delicious wonderfulness.
Yes. I said wonderfulness.
This will be filed away for future use fer sure.
Signing off to rest up for a fun tomorrow….goodnight!
