Another Salad.

, originally uploaded by razzieswirl.

So I've obviously been on a real salad kick lately. There are a few simple reasons for this.

1. It's summer, it's hot, and salads are quick, refreshing and filling.

2. I've been exercising a lot and salads are healthy, and generally contain a lot variety.

Okay so, that's only two reasons. I could come up with more, but I frankly don't want to.

I'm going to make this post short and sweet. I have a lot of other posts to catch up on and since this is a dish I pulled out of thin air (ie what I was craving on the specific night) the recipe will probably be fairly choppy but simple.

Recipe: Southwestern Salad
Serving: 2 to 4.


1 can black beans drained and rinsed
1 ripe avocado chopped into one inch peices
1 cup sweet cherry tomatoes cut in half
1/2 rotisserie chicken shredded
2 fresh white corns slathered in cilantro butter (recipe to follow) and barbequed
2 TBL cilantro
Sharp cheddar cut into little inch peices (use your own cheese discretion here)
A few TBL Jalepeno Gouda (not required, we had it on hand)

Recipe: Cilantro Butter

1. Put 2 TBL cilantro and 4 TBL butter with 1/2 tsp. cumin in a small dish and mix until well combined.
2. Rub all over your two corn on the cobs. Season with salt.
3. Barbeque on high heat for 2-3 minutes per side, until well charred and flavorful.
4. Cut all corn kernels off the cob.


1. Put all of your ingredients into a bowl. Stir. Season with salt, pepper, even hot sauce. And enjoy!

(Sorry, I know the directions are kind of lame, it's easy though, promise).

Easy peasy.
