Charred Corn Salad

Sun dried tomato asparagus appetizers are my new favorite party food. These will be a big hit at any gathering. Good luck keeping these tasty morsels on the table! The recipe is adapted from Culinary Ginger, but has been veganized with the use of Vegan Parmesan in the homemade Sun Dried Tomato Pesto. It may sound […]
