Recipe

Spicy Roasted Corn, Avocado and Chicken Salad

This delicious south-of-the-border salad is a great summer dish, but can be enjoyed all year round. This salad is nutritious, high in protein and low in fat, and enriched by the avocados' good-for-you omega-3s.

  1. This is a great make-ahead for Sabbath lunch on Saturday. Last week when I made the shish kebabs for Sabbath I had my husband grill some chicken legs to have for lunch on Saturday. I served them with the leftover Barley and Sugar Snap Salad and the menu was a great hit with my daughters. Thanks
