We are having a FANTASTIC summer in Calgary. It has been sunny and hot. I know that is what summer is supposed to be like but in Calgary there are no guarantees. Often summers have a bit of warm weather and then they are dreary and rainy. So far this year has exceeded my expectations and I am loving it. The only time the heat is not a good thing is when you need to use the oven or stove to cook. Hot weather + no air conditioning = misery. Instead, I have been making lots of cool and delicious salads.
I love salads that use fresh ingredients and last for a few days in the refrigerator. Bean salad is one of Dewey’s favorite salads I make and he requests it often. I am calling this a corn and mixed bean salad because it has much more corn than my normal bean salad has. I bought corn on the cob at the market because it was on sale. We had a house full of people so I cooked a dozen cobs. After dinner we had six left over. Instead of letting all that delicious corn go to waste, I cut it off the cob to make a salad with it. It was the perfect side dish for our meal AND it lasted for days. We even added it to steak wraps we made a few days later with leftover steak. YUM!
