Confetti Salad

Prep time: 10-15 Minutes

Serves 6-8

This hearty, festive salad is a feast for the eyes and the palate. Always use fresh-squeezed lime juice! (The bottled stuff will ruin this.) Ingredient amounts and proportions can be adjusted to your personal taste. This is a great make-ahead salad for potlucks and picnics.

2 Tbsp. Cilantro-Roasted Onion Olive Oil

2 Tbsp. Jalapeno-White Balsamic Vinegar

1 (15 ounce) can black beans, drained and well-rinsed (1 1/2 cups cooked beans)

1 small can corn kernels, drained and rinsed (or 1 cup fresh or frozen corn)

1-2 c. red cabbage, finely shredded

1 large ripe tomato, diced (or 12 oz. basket of grape tomatoes, halved)

1/4 c. fresh cilantro (leaves and stems), chopped

1 red or yellow bell pepper, diced

1 Tbsp. red onion, chopped (optional)

1 avocado, diced (optional)

1 medium zucchini, diced (optional)

2-3 TBSP fresh lime juice

sea salt to taste

  1. Drain and rinse the corn and beans. Shred cabbage. Dice tomatoes and zucchini. Chop cilantro.
  2. Mix together in large bowl. Add optional ingredients.
  3. Season with salt. Toss with lime juice. Drizzle with Cilantro-Roasted Onion olive oil and Jalapeno-White Balsamic vinegar. Gently mix.

Warm Goat Cheese Salad

This recipe is so versatile and easy I promise! It is more of a “formula” than a recipe.  Be creative and have fun!

Add something crunchy like walnuts, pecans, hazelnuts, pepitas…(for crunchy satisfying texture)

Add some fresh fruit like apples, grapes, pears, orange supremes…(for that burst of freshness)

Add some dried fruit like cranberries, cherries, raisins… (for a sweet/tart chew)

Add something with a little bite like red onion, pickled onion, green onion…(for a kick)

If you don’t like goat cheese or want to make this a hearty meal replace the croquettes with grilled shrimp or chicken, and add a sprinkle of blue cheese crumbles or feta. 

You can also change the dressing to mix any of your favorite Island Olive Oil and vinegar pairings

A shrub is also known as a drinking vinegar which has actually been around for a very long time. It was originally a way of preserving fruit. It’s usually made with apple cider vinegar, fruit and sweetened with sugar and becomes a sweet and sour syrup, but our traditionally made balsamic fruit flavored vinegars are an easy probiotic option without the addition of sugar.  A generous splash can be diluted with seltzer water, and can be spiked with a spirit so it’s a perfect alcohol-optional beverage.
