Corn Salsa

Hello & happy Wednesday!

I am fairly positive that everyone has a version of the recipe I’m sharing today. It’s a corn bean salsa, which pairs perfectly with rice, beef, chicken, steak, fish, er ... cheese? You get the idea. It’s no wonder why so many of us have something like this in our stack of recipes! My favorite part of this particular version is the cinnamon, oddly enough. It really adds some warmth to this cold salad.

 Last night, we had this with steak fajitas and Mexican rice. We used fresh Indiana sweet corn in the salsa, which if you haven’t tried, you simply must… It’s one of the few things for which we Hoosiers have bragging rights. Enjoy this as a side dish, main dish, or for an amazing leftover snack!

 For the salad:

  • 1 can black beans. Rinsed and drained
  • 1 avocado. chopped

  • Juice of one lime

  • ¼ tsp chipotle in adobe sauce

What You Do:

Add all the salad ingredients together. Whisk the dressing ingredients together and pour over the salad. You’re good to go for the perfect snack or side dish!

Cocktail: RYE's Vecchio

Hello! It's Appetizers & Cocktails Week here at THURSDAYS, and we're going to hit the ground running with a serious (and seriously delicious) cocktail recipe. Insert shameless plug: This cocktail is on the menu at my husband's restaurant, RYE, in Louisville. For anyone who can't come try it out in person, this is an easy recipe to try at home!

I headed over to RYE take some photos of the mixology magic. Watch and learn as bartender Doug Petry shows us how it's done.

Happy cooking, crafting and cocktail-ing!
