Honey Sriracha Grilled Shrimp Salad ~ slightly sweet, mostly spicy grilled shrimp plus a sweet corn-avocado salad with a simple 3-ingredient tangy cilantro-lime dressing that pairs perfectly with the sweet corn. Make both the shrimp and salad ~ or either ~ for a great summer dinner, appetizer or light lunch.
Do you remember your hairstyle from the 80’s? Mine involved big hair and lots of spray to achieve the look. I *may* have even carried that look and my giant can of hairspray into the 90’s.
You’re probably wondering where I’m going with all this talk of hair so here it is: not only do hairstyles need updating, but blog posts, too. I didn’t write the original Honey Sriracha Grilled Shrimp Salad recipe as long ago as the 80’s, but you’ll have to trust me when I say while the recipe remains rock solid and unchanged, the photos were in desperate need of a refresh.
Mexican Street Corn Pasta Salad ~ an easy summer side you won’t find at every picnic. Fresh sweet corn sautéed in bacon drippings blended with pasta, peppers, tomatoes, black beans and of course crispy bacon tossed in a delicious creamy, tangy slightly spicy dressing.
Dannnng! I’m late to the table again and just when I ditched my 8-track for a Walkman. Kidding of course, but this time it’s Mexican Street Corn ~ would you believe I just tried it?
My daughter has mentioned 2 or 10 times “we” should try making it. I know that’s code for “Mom, make this next time I’m over”. The truth is I drug my feet because it just didn’t sound appealing. Mayonnaise slathered on beautiful, fresh, sweeter than sweet summer corn is almost sacrilegious.
But practically every time I went on Pinterest I saw so many recipes for Mexican Street Corn I figured I could sacrifice a single ear of corn to try it. The only thing was, my daughter wasn’t over that day. Oops ~ but OMG the flavor had me wishing for a whole bushel of it ~ and not just Mexican Street Corn, but Mexican Street Corn ~ everything.
This Mexican Street Corn Pasta Salad is like pasta salad and Mexican Street Corn had a baby. I’ll leave you with that.
