I took a break from Pinning over at my favorite place to escape, Pinterest, to actually look at my boards and see what I've pinned. And while looking at my food board, Tastebuds and Eyes, I saw that I had collected a few fresh corn ideas & recipes.
Already beyond the dinner hour and completely not in the mood to hit the store for specific ingredients, I decided to use these three as inspiration, rather than a recipe.
I grabbed leftover ears of cooked corn, cut off their kernels into a bowl and headed to the fridge to see what else we had.
I had already reheated the baked chicken & brown rice leftovers for the kids and there was about a quarter cup of rice and an ounce of chicken leftover, so while I was initially going for a salad, I threw them in.
Grabbed an organic red bell pepper, red onion, and avocado, sliced them up and threw them into this One Bowl Wonder. And I dressed her up in lime juice and a little sea salt.
It was absolutely delicious! I think it could be even better with some zucchini and chopped flat leaf parsley or cilantro, depending on your preference.
I will definitely make this again. And you want to know what else is cool? This delish dinner is GFCF (gluten & casein free) and since it was a One Bowl Wonder, there's minimal clean up! Now that's what I call a perfect summer meal.
