All The Colors

Summer is finally here, well at least that’s what the calendar says. It seems like the weather hasn’t quite decided yet but hopefully soon warm weather will be here to stay. With that said, I did take advantage of the warm weather earlier this week to make a delicious “summer themed” dinner.

First up, a delicious fruit salsa.

I used:

  • 1/2 c mango chunks
  • 1/2 c pineapple tidbits
  • 1/4 c red pepper, diced
  • 1/4 c red onion, diced
  • 1 T lime juice
  • 1/4 c Boston Olive Oil Company coconut balsamic vinegar, reduced over heat to 1/8 c

I mixed all of the ingredients and chilled salsa for about 30 minutes before serving.

On the side, I made a Chili-Lime Corn and Heirloom Tomato Salad.

I used:

  • 2 c corn kernals
  • 1 c baby heirloom tomatoes, halved
  • 1/4 t cayenne pepper
  • 1 T LeRoux Kitchen butter flavored olive oil
  • 1 T lime juice

In a grill pan, I heated up the olive oil and then cooked the corn until it started to brown. I added cayenne and lime juice and finally the heirloom tomatoes.

I grilled up a few chicken tenders in my grill pan and then served the chilled fruit salsa on top and the corn and heirloom tomato salad on the side. It was not only quick to prepare, but it was full of delicious summer flavors.

Happy Summer!
