Sunday Dinner... picnic style!

The Chef and I have taken to spending friday afternoons at the lake with a blanket, good book, and a picnic basket... {weather permitting}

And that means we get to try out fun new "picnic~y" type recipes.
This is one we recently tried, and Im a bit in l♥ve with!


For the dressing:
1 1/2 C Packed fresh cilantro
1/2 C Good-quality extra-virgin olive oil
2 T Fresh lime juice
1 T Finely grated lime zest
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

For the salad:
4 ears Corn, kernels removed (about 3 cups)
1 1/2 pounds Grape tomatoes, halved (about 3 cups)
1 pound Fresh mozzarella, diced
2 medium Avocados, diced

Combine the dressing ingredients in a blender, using two teaspoons salt and pepper to taste; process until smooth. Combine the salad ingredients in a large bowl and toss with the dressing. Let sit at least 15 minutes before serving, or cover and refrigerate for up to four hours.

We enjoyed this with a crusty baguette, a bottle of Fisher Vineyards Moutain Estates chardonnay {2006} and some pretty yummy brownie style whoopie pies for dessert! YUM.Tastic.

I hope you enjoy!

Be good to each other!
