Southern Food Done Right!

August 20, 2009

While down in Atlanta the other week we took the opportunity to have ourselves some food with Southern flare & boy were we in for a treat. Two Urban Licks & One Midtown Kitchen, both owned by Concentrics Restaurants, were delicious and brought a delightful array of flavors that used Southern basics like grits and brisket, but not ignoring fresh produce and a unique perspective on dish preparations.

One was also kind enough to share the recipe for one of our favorite meal elements! Check out this delicious, refreshing & unique side salad idea below!

Watermelon Sweet Corn Salad

Diced seedless watermelon
Fresh corn, cut off the cob (ONE chefs hit the corn lightly on the wood grill to enhance the sweetness, but it is also great raw)
Halved cherry tomatoes
Fresh cilantro and scallions
Extra virgin olive oil
Lime juice
Salt and pepper

Toss all ingredients and serve as a side dish
