This time of year i love making different kinds of salad. A good salad really hits
the spot on a hot summer day! This salad is perfect for lunch, or dinner. I think
food is beautiful, and this salad is so colorful, and delicious!! It has so many great
flavors going on.
It is fresh and delicious.
Take it up a notch by making a wrap with flour tortillas.
The dressing is light, and oh so good!
I love all the colors!
Add the beans, and dressing!
Rinse, and drain the beans:))
I used my small cast iron fry pan to brown the tortillas! It only takes a minute.
1/3 cup fresh lime juice
1/2 cup of olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
2 (15 ounce) cans black beans, rinsed and drained
1 1/2 cup frozen corn kernels
1 avocado- peeled, pitted, and diced
2 tomatoes chopped
6 green onions, thinly sliced
1. Place lime juice, olive oil, garlic, salt, and cayenne pepper
in a small jar. Cover with lid, and shake until ingredients
are well mixed.
2. In a small bowl, combine beans, corn, avocado, bell pepper
tomatoes, and green onions.
Shake lime dressing, and pour it over salad.
Stir to coat vegetables, and beans, with dressing, and serve.
Note... I used less olive oil, and increased the lime juice.

I love giving an old piece of furniture a fresh, new, look! I bought this cabinet
at a yard sale for $15.00. With a little time you can give an old piece of furniture
a fresh new look. I love finding a piece of furniture that i could paint. I just enjoy
painting. I knew i had a spot for this piece in the kitchen. I wanted to have a place
to display some of my ironstone.
Perfect for a few pieces of ironstone. I painted it cottage white. I did some glazing and sanding.
You have a peek at the valances i just got done sewing. I love the red and white striped ticking fabric that i bought at joanns.
I also painted stripes from top to bottom.
Each drawer had to small knobs. I filled the holes with wood filler and drilled two new holes
for the glass handles that i had.
I love all the cut-outs!
Have a great day.

I made these cute and tasty mini tarts. I think mini everything is better, don't you think?
These are so good for a weekend breakfast! The recipe is from Home and Garden. I find lots
of good recipes on their site. I made these the night before, and in the morning i just warmed
them up. I love recipes i can prepare in advance.
Cute and tasty!!!
You make these with ready made pie dough. That's always a good thing. I don't want the crusts looking perfect. I like the rustic look.
Filled with lots of goodness!!
