Cowboy caviar is the best thing to put on a chip that I have found in ages! When you make it make sure you use fresh ingredients and taste test as you go. This is great for potlucks, work functions, or to just enjoy with the fam at home.

Succotash is not a difficult dish to make if you love vegetables. You Can mix and match whatever veggies are in season, or whichever veggies you are craving. The key is pairing it with an equally tasty protein, try marinated tofu cooked in the air fryer!


8. Hot Corn Dip

The cooking channels on television are meant to make you drool, I swear they are! However, having this corn dip transformed into a vegan dish is not something that we need to fight. The fact that it is dairy & mayo free while packed with cashew cream says enough!


9. Chipotle Roasted Corn Salad

You will be able to enjoy this copycat chipotle corn salsa in any element; come rain or shine. That is literally how great it looks. Not to mention you can use anything as a scoop to get it from bowl to mouth. My preferred method is a crisp tortilla chip!
