Fresh Corn & Avocado Salad

categories: , , , ,

I found this recipe from Authentic Suburban Gourmet. It is the PERFECT salad for summer! I cannot tell you how fresh it tastes. Just make it. Every BBQ or party I’ve taken it to it’s been a total hit and people are scarfing it down. It’s healthy and it’s delicious. So nice to have some healthy options at summer parties or picnics. And because it’s meat free, dairy free, grain free anyone can eat it.
Here is her recipe. My only advice is don’t use all the dressing or it will get a little too soggy at the bottom (and  dress it right before you’re going to eat it).
Also, I doubled the recipe for a large BBQ and omitted the Feta cheese.
5 Ears Corn, husk removed, brush with olive oil and grilled, remove corn with sharp knife
2 Avocado’s, diced and sprinkled with lemon juice to prevent browning
2 C. Tomatoes, red and yellow cherry variety or equivalent
1 Small red onion, finely diced
¾ C. Feta, crumbled
1 ½ C. English cucumber, skin on and chopped small dice
Add to a large bowl and refrigerate until ready to use.
Cilantro Vinaigrette
6 T. Olive oil
2 T. vinegar
1 t. Garlic powder
2 T. Fresh cilantro, minced
½ t. Salt
10 Grinds of fresh ground pepper
Add all of the above ingredients in a small glass jar with a lid. Shake really well. Taste and adjust seasoning and ratios of oil and vinegar as you desire. When ready to serve salad, add the dressing and gently toss. IMG_6282
