Summer Salad with a Quick and Easy Corn Salsa

Do you ever feel like you’ve been to one too many BBQ’s in the summer. Well I sure do. This is a fun alternative to the typical BBQ and it used some Food Storage.

SUMMER

The beauty of this concept is that people can make their own salads the way they like them. I like to put the hot ingredients in these tin containers where they can stay hot, but if they aren’t super hot it wont matter. The other ingredients can be put in Ziploc bags and transported wherever you want to go! Be creative with this idea and maybe enjoy a spin on the typical summer BBQ at your next family party.

Salad Bar BBQ

Lettuce
Rice (cook with cilantro and lime juice)
Beans (see instructions on how to take dry beans, to yummmy beans here)
Grilled chicken (since this is a summer BBQ salad bar after all)
Corn salsa (see recipe below)
Shredded cheese
Salsa
Dressing of your choice
Chip strips
Any other toppings you like

salsa

Quick and Easy Corn Salsa
1 cup Freeze Dried Sweet Corn
1/4 cup Dehydrated Red and Green Bell Peppers
1/4 cup Freeze Dried Onions
2 TablespoonsFreeze Dried Cilantro

Combine corn, peppers and onions in bowl and cover with water. Let sit until corn is soft. Drain water. Add Cilantro. You can use fresh ingredients as well, but this works for a quick salsa when you don’t have some things on hand. You can also add the black beans and tomatoes right to this if you would like.

Hopefully this adds some “freshness” to your next event, and helps you rotate some of your food storage.
Enjoy!
