A glimpse and a quick update as to how Herbie’s herb garden is growing. It looks awesome y’all! Fresh herbs at my fingertips, yes please! We’ve had an herb garden at every place we’ve ever had and I enjoy being able to have fresh herbs at my convenience. Here’s my herb garden update & a perfect summer salad.
My husband is the best for always helping and obliging with my crazy whims. Especially for helping put in the garden–a gesture that keeps on giving.
I’ve been tearing off mint leaves for my sweet tea each day and when we had family over recently, I clipped some of the cilantro for one particular recipe I was dying to try.
It’s this amazing corn avocado tomato salad that is so easy to prepare and tastes amazing!
You just have to try it.
With a few changes, it was PERFECTO!!!
The original recipe is great too- this just saved me some time & I wanted to try it with the new vinaigrette.
CORN Avocado Tomato Salad
- 1 c. grape tomatoes
- firm avocado (cubed)
- 1 c. frozen sweet corn (thawed)
- 2 T. fresh cilantro (chopped)
- 1/2 c. red onion (finely diced)
- 2 T. Brianna’s Champagne Caper vinaigrette
Wash, rinse and dry tomatoes & place in a large bowl with the remaining veges.
Gently mix and slowly add the dressing, tossing to coat completely.
Refrigerate for 2 or more hours before serving.
herb garden update & a perfect summer salad
Besides looking beautiful—-it’s bloomin’ tasty! I could’ve just eaten that for my meal!
However, we served it with grilled chicken kabobs (chicken, red bell, mango, squash, mushrooms & red onion all tossed in olive oil, seasoned & grilled for 13-15 minutes) & lime cilantro basmati!
It was a perfect summer meal! Light, refreshing and all those fresh herbs ~ YUM
Meals certainly taste a whole lot better when you have your very own little herb garden!
