Summer Bean Salad with Corn & Tomatoes

An adaptation of Chef Kindred's (Kindred's Restaurant NC) Bean,tomato, corn salad in with pot likker. Different & very good!

Here’s a perfect salad/side that just screams Summer! Maybe that’s why Chef Joe Kindred (Kindred’s Restaurant in Davidson, North Carolina – yep, the same restaurant responsible for Kindred’s Milk Bread) named the original recipe “Summer Bean Salad.”

Mexican Street Corn

Mexican Street Corn - grilled for 8 minutes, then slathered in a spicy, cheesy mix! A favorite.

Maybe the world doesn’t need another post on “Mexican Street Corn” or what is really our American version based off of the classic “Elotes.” I do, though – or I’m hitting up sites when I’m making dinner, trying to find the particulars. You’d think I’d be able to remember grill 8 to 10 minutes, lol!
