There’s nothing like a refreshing salad to really finish off a summer day. I mean, the only thing worse that enduring a hot day, is having to cook over a hot stove! Right? And that’s why this gorgeous elote (corn) salad with Wonderful pistachios makes a delicious lunch or dinner meal.
The awesome folks over at Wonderful Pistachios sent over the recipe so that I could share with you. I can’t wait to go shopping for the ingredients because I know that the familia will devour it. Plus, it’s so low cal that I can totally have seconds (maybe thirds?)!
