Dr. Osselaer is shown on the left standing next to League member, Linda Cathey.
In AZ, women have always had a voice and a vote. Dr. Osselaer's stories sure peaked my interest in reading more about these remarkable women who were married, had families as well as being effective legislators.
10 oz. fresh or frozen shelled edamame beans (soybeans)
1 15 oz. can yellow hominy, drained (I prefer Bush brand)
1 15 oz. can white hominy, drained (I prefer Bush brand)
I small red bell pepper, diced
1 small onion, diced (I prefer green onions; milder)
1 fresh jalapeno pepper, diced (or to taste)
¼ cup cilantro, chopped
½ cup seasoned rice wine vinegar
¼ cup fresh lime juice
¼ cup vegetable oil
½ tsp. Pico de Gallo seasoning (or chile powder)
½ tsp. cumin
2 tsp. chipotle salsa (most grocery stores have this)
Salt and pepper to taste (may not need salt)
Mix salad ingredients together. In a separate bowl thoroughly combine dressing ingredients. Pour dressing over salad and mix thoroughly. Chill at least 4 hours. Serves 6 to 8.
Notes: This is very different, spicy, and keeps exceptionally well for days, in the refrigerator.
