Easy Corn Pico de Gallo Salad

Last night we had company. I was very excited to have this young couple over, who live in our new town, and we lingered around the table for several hours. It was a precious time.

First of all, I’m not afraid to ask for help. It seems more and more, since my family is older now, everyone pitches in before company arrives. We also have this great new kitchen, that we designed with lots of room. In our last house, we had a large kitchen, but the space on the cooking side was tight.
As a hostess, I want to enjoy my time with the guests, too. So hard work getting organized on the back end of entertaining, makes it so worth it, allowing me to linger later and enjoy the company.

I also think my kids have learned the hard work that goes into a meal, and they appreciate it more. You know, not only the tasty dishes, but the love and time and energy that goes into cooking and hosting.

We ate outside, and then as it got dark and chilly, we moved inside, for homemade ice cream and fresh peaches.

The first table … getting to know our guests. Really fun!

The second table … a very real conversation. Actually, I’d say that it was more most? honest.

A beautiful reminder of why we gather at all.

A super-easy, healthy, fresh summer dish to serve, and one that I’ve made several times, consists of pico de gallo, fresh ears of corn, cilantro, and a lime.

Pico de gallo is made from chopped tomato, onion, coriander leaves, fresh serranos, salt, and lime juice.

What makes this salad so easy is that you can buy pico de gallo already made, in the grocery store (in the deli or refrigerated dip section), so you can make this salad in no time. Squeeze the fresh lime over the salt; salt and pepper to taste.

  1. There are now entirely too many pop up ads and moving vacuum cleaners etc on your blog. I am considering Unsubscribing because of this. Surely, I am not the only one who objects to them. 

  2. Love simple ideas like this, especially when they can combine something store bought to make it quicker and yet still healthy.
