Corn Salad with Tamale Croutons
Total TimePrep: 30 min. Bake: 25 min.
Makes12 servings (3/4 cup each)
the croutons never hardened. They stayed soft and mushy, like the corn tomalito you get at Chevy's in the shape of ice cream. Huge disappointment. I picked this recipe solely for the crouton idea
This was excellent! I couldn't find Masa Harina anywhere so I used Gluten Free Corn Flour. The croutons turned out great anyway. They were the best part of the salad and I couldn't stop eating them. My jicama was bad so I couldn't use it but I thought the salad tasted fine without. Next time I think I'll add black beans. Everyone loved the salad and it tasted even better the 2nd and 3rd day.
This looks and sounds awesome, and would be great for a special occasion. There are just a lot of ingredients that I don't always have on hand. I'm still saving this one with intentions of making at a later date. Masa Harina is a corn flour treated with lime juice. The lime juice makes it more digestible.
Could someone tell me what 'masa harina' is? I have never heard of it. Thanks
