Jimmy Cracked Corn, and I Don't Care
My neighbor is a chef at our grocery store’s cooking demonstration area and he let me sample his dish du jour – chicken sausage with mozzarella and basil served with a Southwest black bean and corn salad. I’ve actually had both of these before, but they were never THIS good.
I had to make that salad. I took a short cut (at his suggestion) and bought the store’s freshly prepared pico de gayo to substitute for the tomato, onion, cilantro. It comes in a little tub in the prepared veggies section at HEB. Choose MILD, not hot. Also, I did not use 1/2 the bottle of the dressing. As a matter of fact, I don't think I even used 1/4 of the bottle. I drizzled enough that there was some pooling at the bottom of the bowl to marinade it. Next time, and there WILL be a next time, I'll have to measure.
