sautéed corn salad

Mabel isn't eating meat these days. And Mike and Oliver and I aren't eating sugar or white flour. So, that means our family has been eating lots of beans and vegetables and fruit. I've made a few batches of my favorite summer salad, which I shared on my blog years ago, but I wanted to share it here again.

Sautéed Corn and Black Bean Salad

2 tablespoons of butter
4 ears of corn, raw, kernels removed
2 cans of black beans, drained and rinsed
2 avocados, chopped
1 bunch of cilantro, chopped
1/2 bunch of green onions, chopped
the juice of 1 or 2 limes, depending on how juicy your limes are

Sauté the corn in the butter over medium high heat until brown spots start to appear. Remove from the heat and let cool.

In a large bowl, mix the beans, avocado, cilantro, green onions, and lime juice. Add the cool-ish corn and stir well.

I like this salad warm, but it's meant to be chilled. So, put it in the fridge for an hour or two.

When you aren't eating sugar, it's amazing how sweet sautéed corn can taste. I love this salad for its simplicity. It makes a great side dish, or fry an egg on top and serve it as the main course.

  1. I have 2 recipes I want you to try this month. i attempt to do no sugar, and i like to have these around. i t is thursday and I am going to start with one week...and see how far i can make it. Father's day is coming up, but I think I can even make my dessert without sugar (white flour though- Strawberry short cake with cream)...ok...Here is the cookie recipe. I have take out the honey from this and used dates that I make into a paste in the food processor. from here:
    I press the cookies down because they do not spread. You can uses stevia sweetened chocolate chips, leave them out, or make your own stevia sweetened chocolate and chop it into chunks.

    Second is this breakfast cookie. again, i do not use honey, I used ground dates. I also use flax eggs. I double the recipe and store them in my freezer. I use a cookie scoop and flatten them. I got about 50 cookies. I use pumpkin in place of the sweet potato. My go to mix ins are heaping 1/2 cup hemp seed. 1/2 cup of un sweetened coconut, 1/2cup of slivered almonds, 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds, 1/2 cup sunflower seeds, 1/2 cacoa nibs 1/2 cup stevia sweetened chocolate chunks 1/2 cup of oats (so no longer paleo) and sometimes i add chia, but it gets stuck in my teeth. let me know how they go.
