Looking for an epic creative summer side dish? Boom. This is it… Corn, Blueberry, and Halloumi Grain Salad with Walnut and Basil will be the hit of any party!
Well, it happened again. Another summer vacation almost over. There’s just one short week left. I’m totally not complaining. Being a teacher is such a great gig and I’m almost (not really) excited to get back into the routine of things.
Although, hey, we literally have no idea what our routine is going to look like now that we also have to get a 2-month old baby up, fed, and in the car with me to get to the babysitter’s (i.e. Mima!) before I go to work. We will see how that goes…
But here’s what I do know. This creative summer side dish has been the hit salad at our house (and all family and friend gatherings) the past two months. Asheley, who hasn’t had a huge appetite at all this summer, will gladly devour a crazy big portion of it. Like, she skips getting a serving spoon out and putting some in a bowl for herself and instead just dives right into the whole batch of it.
Corn, Blueberry, and Halloumi Grain Salad. You are here to stay in our house… because you are epic.
Are you a little intrigued by the corn and blueberry thing together? You should be. It’s a magical, epic combination that I’m currently obsessed with. Asheley and I experienced it for the first time in a pasta dish at an awesome San Francisco restaurant a couple years back… and now I’ve been using the flavor combo ever since.
And have you heard of halloumi cheese? It’s literally the coolest cheese on the planet. It’s the Fonzie of the cheese world. You can grill it… and it doesn’t melt! It’s got a flavor profile and texure kind of like mozzarella with a saltier bite.
Ever been to a backyard BBQ party where there are like a billion different side salads put out on the table because every guest brought their “famous whatever-they-make”. And then at the end of dinner you look at all the serving bowls and see which ones are still full (i.e. the rejects)? Yea, this bowl is gonna be empty, because it’s the shizz. Just saying. #truth
And for all my dudes out there, don’t let this Corn, Blueberry, and Halloumi Salad be the only epic thing at your summer parties this year. You can get your epic shave on with Schick Hydro® razors and groomer. My face is feeling f-i-n-e fine thanks to these shaving tips from Schick.
