WARM CORN CHOWDER SALAD

WARM CORN CHOWDER SALAD

I’m in love with versatile recipes

….ones that are  simple to make

…ones where ingredients can be swapped to produce a result just as delicious as the original

…ones that can be transformed into something entirely different using the same ingredients.

This is one of those recipes.

I took a basic corn chowder recipe (for my boat version click here)

I swapped out fresh corn for canned corn.

I eliminated the milk/cream component and added some fresh green to turn soup into salad.  Some sliced grilled chicken could be added to make this a fresh main salad..

…and guess what?…

with a wave of my magic galley wand and a little reverse engineering of leftovers, salad becomes chowder.

Galley Kat Hint: Smash a few of the potato pieces to give it more of a ‘chowder’ texture.
