About Us

The Latin Dish is the first iPad magazine to explore the rich and flavorful cuisine, wine, art, and culture of Latin American cultures. We’re on a mission to discover as much as we can about this unique and special group of communities and we hope you’re interested in coming along for the journey.

Brought to you every two months for free via the iTunes store, The Latin Dish was started by a handful of people who thoroughly enjoy the all the contributions of Latin American society, but mostly the food! We can’t get enough and are working to bring you exciting and appetizing editorial on traditional and modern dishes, gardening, and movers and shakers in the community, all illustrated with exciting photos and video. We hope you enjoy and come back for a second serving of the Dish!

Dee's Avocado and Corn Salad

Greens of your choice (I usually include some spinach for added health benefits.)
Avocados , peeled and diced into large pieces. (I use one avocado per two people.)
1 cup Corn (I use defrosted, drained frozen corn. Be sure and allow enough time for corn to defrost before making salad.)
1/3 cup Sliced almonds, toasted
4 oz. Goat cheese (You can also use feta for a tangier taste.)
1/3 cup Golden raisins
Handful halved Cherry tomatoes
1/3 cup Cilantro, finely chopped
1 Scallion (white and green parts) thinly sliced

Although I have given measurements for this recipe, I have to confess that I don’t measure salad ingredients. I just toss in the amounts I think look good and hearty. Gently mix all ingredients with the following dressing:

2 tablespoon Rice wine vinegar (last time I made this dressing, I used a peach vinegar. Delicious!)
2 teaspoons Honey
½ tablespoon Dijon Mustard

Extra Virgin Olive Oil - at least 2 tablespoons, more as needed

Combine the vinegar, honey and mustard. Whisk in the olive oil until emulsified. Add salt and pepper to taste. Enjoy!
