Grill Tuesday: $3.00 Grilled Salad


Sometimes we just tire of grilled burgers and hot dogs, so tonight change it up a notch and make a simple and inepensive Grilled Corn and Black Bean Salad. This recipe serves 4, Prep Time is 15 minutes, and Grill Time is 10 Minutes.

You will need:
4 ears fresh corn, shucked, 3 tablespoons extra virgin oil, 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice, 2 teaspoons chili powder, salt, 2 cans (15 oz. each) black beans, rinsed and drained, 1 bunch fresh radishes, trimmed and thinly sliced, 3 scallions thinly sliced, 1/3 cup chopped cilantro, 1 avocado thinly sliced, 4 ounces queso fresco cheese crumbled

Preheat your grill to medium.  Add the corn and grill until charred in spots, about 10 minutes.  Let the corn cool completely.

In a large bowl, whisk together the extra virgin oil, lime juice, chili powder and 1/2 teaspoon of salt.  Using a large sharp knife, carefully cut the corn kernels fro the cobs and transfer to the bowl.

Add the beans, radishes, scallions and cilantro and toss well.  Divide the salad among 4 plates and top with queso cheese and avocado.  Serve with warm corn muffins or your favorite biscuits with a side of honey butter.

Thanks for stopping in and Bon Appetit!
