Kickin’ Hints Summer Salad

Wow. I tried something new, and wow. This was above and beyond most simple salads I’ve put together – by far. It has light fruit overtones, and is a great companion to spicy summer meals or light meats (chicken or pork). We served it with broiled apricots and BBQ chicken lettuce wraps.


1.5 large red bell peppers

3/4 medium Walla Walla sweet onion

1 C minced cilantro

1/2 bag frozen white corn (about 1 1/4 C)

1 C fresh (not canned!), minced pineapple

5 small cloves crushed garlic

1/2 C lime juice

2 Tbsp agave nectar

1 tsp fresh cracked black pepper

1/2 tsp sea salt

1/2 tsp cayenne

1/2 tsp sumac (fuchsia colored spice that tastes somewhat like a tart strawberry)

  • Chop onion and bell pepper into small pieces (half-dime sized or smaller).
  • Mix in minced cilantro, minced pineapple, and 1/2 bag frozen white corn.
  • Crush 5 small cloves garlic, add.
  • Add lime juice, pepper, salt, agave nectar, sumac, and cayenne.
  • Mix together very well and let sit about 15-20 minutes.
