White Bean and Corn Salad

"A nice way to use up leftover corn on the cob. This salad is light and refreshing. Can easily be a main course with a loaf of bread and a glass of white wine for a nice easy summer dinner."

  1. Made for Pick a Chef 2012.<br/><br/>Solid and simple vegetarian dish. Thanks for posting.


<p>I love to cook and create new recipes for my family. Luckily my family is very adventurous when it comes to food. My husband loves to cook as well and together we make a team to be reckoned with. He is a better technical cook while I am a better at flavor combinations. Some people can picture what a blueprint will look like when it is done, I can taste what a recipe will be like when it is done. <br /> <br />We keep a kosher home so we eat no shellfish or pork and do not mix meat and dairy at the same meal. This sometimes presents challenges in the kitchen but we have learned many tricks to compensate for it. Kosher doesn't have to mean dull or uninspired. I am also slowly moving towards purchasing more and more organic foods. <br /> <br />I think most food tastes better when eaten with those that you love. We try to have dinner together as a family as many nights as we can during the week. <br /> <br />I live in Northern NJ in a beautiful lake community where my day job is a librarian. One of my favorite perks is that I get to order the cookbooks for my library and get a sneak peek at them all!</p>
