It’s been especially hot this summer and these popsicles are a great way to cool off!

Cajun Corn Salad – Court of Two Sisters – New Orleans

Shared by Court of Two Sisters in New Orleans, LA

If you’ve ever been to New Orleans and had the pleasure of eating at the Court of Two Sisters, then you’ve probably had this corn salad.  It’s refreshing and so flavorful.  The recipe makes a lot, but keeps well.  Sometimes I grill my corn to add another layer of flavor.

CAJUN CORN SALAD
Ingredients
1 qt. Cooking Oil – (I use olive oil.)
1 qt. Mayonnaise
1 tbsp. Fresh Cilantro, minced
3/4 cup Sour Cream
1/4 cup Garlic, minced
1 tsp. Chili Powder
1/2 tsp. Ground Black Pepper
1 1/2 tsp. Cayenne Pepper
3 each Juice of Limes
1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese
1 tsp. Kosher Salt
24 heads Whole Corn

Remove the husks and silk from the corn. Rinse corn clean and allow to dry. Place whole corn on baking pan and rub in cooking oil. Roast corn at 450 degrees until brown. Remove kernels from cob and mix with remaining ingredients. Yield: 1 gallon

Jezebel Sauce

I’ve had several people ask me for this recipe lately.  It’s simple to make and keeps very well.  Serve over cream cheese (with Ritz crackers) as an appetizer or as a sauce for pork or lamb.  I like to eat it on ham sandwiches in lieu of mustard or mayo.

1 (1.2 ounce) can dry mustard

1 (4 ounce) jar prepared horseradish

1 (16 ounce) jar pineapple preserves

1 (16 ounce) jar apple jelly

Stir mustard and horseradish together in a medium bowl.  Add preserves and jelly and mix until thoroughly blended – do not use a mixer – mix gently.  Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.  This sauce will keep in refrigerator for several months.
