Recipes for a Labor Day Potluck Party

Bring everyone's favorite food at the Labor Day potluck this year. You can make a regular corn and tomato salad to take advantage of the dwindling availability of these summer vegetables (or technically vegetable and fruit, but details, details). And that's fine. It will be delicious if you use local, fresh produce. But you can do that, and add more ingredients to really wow the crowd. You can add more sweetness, more spice, more smokiness, more crunch, and more creaminess. This vegan recipe mixes tomatoes, corn, tomatillos, jicama, and chiles together, and then tosses them with a creamy chipotle and avocado dressing. People just might even go for seconds, this is so satisfying.
