The Dish

April’s Dish is serving up Saxon’s own, Lauri Hauer’s favorites!

Dine In

Lauri’s favorite dish to serve when staying in is her Easy Summer Salsa, and this is not your traditional tomato salsa. It is black bean and corn based, and best enjoyed with friends and neighbors around the fire pit. The best thing about this salsa is, as the name alludes, it’s easy to make and perfect for entertaining. Also, it just gets better the longer it sits, so making it ahead saves you more time and makes it more delicious!



1 can of black beans, drained and rinsed

1 can yellow/white corn, drained

1 medium sized red onion, chopped

Mix these ingredients together in a bowl

½ cup apple cider vinegar

¼ cup sugar

Mix these together and let sugar somewhat dissolve, pour over above ingredients

Chop a few cilantro leaves and mix through

Dine Out

For a night out Lauri recommends checking out the WOOD FIRED GRILL PIZZAS at The Works!!! This is a family fun spot OR a great date night by the bike trail in Downtown Historic Loveland. The Works is located in the old firehouse in Loveland. This place has an atmosphere you can’t find anywhere else around Cincinnati. Their wood fired pizzas are the BEST, Hauer says!  Check out their pastas, salads, seafood, burgers, craft beers and so much more.
