Cashew “Mock Chicken” Salad and Corn Stuffing

This is really delicious stuffed in a large red pepper 🙂 Sometimes you just want to eat really fun food! This salad was fun to make and even more fun to eat. I cut the pepper in sections and used them as scoopers for the salad. It was divine! The salad reminded me of the cooked vegetarian chopped liver that I enjoy on many Jewish Holidays. This is a great raw version that can be substituted.

I love colorful food. So along side this gorgeous stuffed red pepper I made this Delicious stuffing or corn salad. I love love love corn. When you eat corn raw your body treats it like a vegetable unlike cooked corn which becomes a starch. Summer corn is so fresh and sweet, I just could not get enough of this amazing salad.
