Today’s recipe is a knock-off of a dish my step-mom makes. She’s an amazing cook and makes a killer Caesar dressing. No joke, she often makes more than necessary for the meal so that Mr. Crumbs has some leftover for his weekday lunch salads.
Hmmm… mental note to see if she’d be willing to share her recipe so I can share with you…
Anyway, corn is another Spring/Summer vegetable that doesn’t need much of anything to be added to it in order for it to be good (unlike brussel sprouts!). This recipe takes a deliciously sweet vegetable and transforms it into a savory one. It may not have many ingredients, but it provides ample flavor for any meal, including our taco night and leftover taco salads!

If I use frozen corn for this recipe, should it be thawed first?
Yes, and drained as well so you’re adding the extra moisture to the salad. 🙂
Spaghetti looks like it’s very popular among MPM participants. We’re having Spaghetti and Meatballs tonight.
Looks like a delicious week!
Happy MPM and have a wonderful week.
With being so easy and so comforting, it’s always a family favorite!
