3-4 cups of cooked corn (you can use frozen or fresh)
1/2 cup diced red bell pepper
1 cup of cooked lima beans, edamame beans or other beans (or leave them out)
1/2 cup diced red onion
1 green bell pepper, diced
1 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of gluten free red chile powder
1/4 cup gluten free cider vinegar
1/3 cup vegetable oil
freshly ground black pepper
Mix it all up, refrigerate it and let the flavors mix for a couple of hours. This simple corn salad is delicious, and very colorful! If you are making this for a gluten-free friend, make sure to use gluten free spices, and tell your friend that you took the trouble. There are some spice purveyors that promise to include all ingredients on their labels, but some of them don’t and this makes the GF community wary and nervous about the possibility of fillers that may have been added to the spices!
You can add tomatoes to this recipe, and you can add 1-2 minced jalapeno peppers if you want a little heat in your salad.
If you are serving food to gluten-free friends, check carefully with the manufacturers, or on the reputable internet-based gluten free food lists, to make sure that all ingredients are gluten free. Or, ask your friends which brands are safe for them to eat.0
