Like the rest of the northeast, it's been a hot summer here in Eastern Maine; however, most of us here don't have airconditioning, so I'm on the lookout for interesting whole-meal salads! Found this on epicurious. If you haven't tried hominy, it's about time: it's corn treated with cooking lye, so that it comes out with a texture and flavor somewhere between corn and garbanzo beans. Recipe calls for yellow hominy, but all we can find here is white; doesn't make any difference in the taste, from what I can tell. Give it a little time in the refrigerator before serving so it's nice and cold!
