I enjoyed a great 4th of July at my brother’s cabin in Northern Minnesota — lots of people up for a fun weekend and plenty of hungry mouths to feed! I was pleased to share the kitchen with one of my favorite chefs, Sharon Wetteland Poole (writer, blogger and wonderful cook). Sharon authors a beautiful blog called “In A Northern Kitchen”, inanorthernkitchen.blogspot.com. While planning our menu for the week and making the grocery store list, Sharon reminded me of a great Cornbread Salad recipe she created last Summer using our own Salad Girl Lemony Herb Organic Salad Dressing, along with some just picked romaine from St. Mathias Farm and some really delicious sweet corn and little cherry tomatos. Wow! Sharon’s salad was a sure hit for our 4th of July celebration, and I couldn’t wait to share it on our blog! This salad is a great way to feature sweet corn, fresh basil, and the cherry tomatoes coming in from the farmers’ markets and from the garden. Enjoy!
