Hello there– Do you have a summer favorite dish?? Laurel made this for us on our stay with them in Wisconsin and I’ve made it twice already since we’ve been home! Tonight it was on the table for a cookout at our neighbor’s house– my new summer favorite!!
Sweet charred corn, creamy avocado, summer ripe tomatoes– flavored with just a hint of lime. Perfect!
FRESH CORN AVOCADO & TOMATO SALAD
3 ears of sweet corn
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
1 lage avocado, peeled, pitted, chunked
1/2 cup cilantro, finely chopped
2 green onions, thinly sliced
1 jalapeno, ribs & seeds removed, minced
zest & juice of 1 large lime
1/4 tsp. salt
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 cup olive oil
Cut the corn kernels from the cob, slicing down the cob with a knife. Heat 3 tab. of olive oil in a skillet and drop in the corn for about 4 minutes, until some of the kernels are charred, stirring a couple times while it cooks. Take off the heat and cool the corn.
To make the dressing, carefully removed the ribs and seeds from the jalapeno, then mince it finely. (I use a plastic bag on the hand holding the jalapeno, to prevent pepper burn!).
Put the jajapeno, lime zest & juice, salt, garlic and oil into a container with a tight fitting lid. Shake until the ingredients are well blended.
Add the cut cherry tomatoes, avocado, cilantro and green onion to the cooled corn. Mix in the dressing and refrigerate until you are ready to serve it up.
