How To Make Avocado Corn Salad

Grab these ingredients first

  • Ears of corn
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Lime
  • Avocado
  • Red onion
  • Garlic
  • Cilantro
  • Parsely
  • Dried oregano
  • Salt & black pepper

Helpful tips before starting

  • When corn isn’t in season and it’s difficult to find ears of corn, you can use frozen or canned corn for this recipe. Of course, fresh corn is best but frozen and canned corn can still taste great.
  • In some recipes grilled corn is used. You can use that option but remove the garlic from the recipe. The garlic will burn on that high heat when trying to grill the corn and I wouldn’t recommend fresh garlic in the recipe.

Putting the avocado corn salad recipe together

  1. To start, cut the corn from the cob and mince cloves of garlic. In a pan on medium heat, add a little oil and toss in the corn and the garlic. Season with a little salt and pepper. You only want to release the flavors not cook the corn until it’s soft. No more than 5 minutes doing this.
  2. Remove the corn and garlic from heat and sat aside.
  3. Next, dice red onion, remove avocado from skin and cube the flesh. Half the cherry tomatoes, chop the cilantro and parsley.
  4. In a large salad bowl, add in corn, avocado, red onion, cherry tomatoes, cilantro, parsley and dried oregano. Give everything a toss.
  5. Now, zest and juice two limes over the salad.
  6. Lastly, taste for salt.

What to do with leftovers

There will probably not be leftovers but if there is this is not a recipe to be frozen. You can store this recipe in the refridgerator a maximum of 3 days due to the avocado. Be sure to give the avocado corn salad a toss to make sure the avocado is coated with the lime the seal into a container. You can also cover the top of the bowl with plastic film.
