Fresh Corn, Avocado & Tomato Salad

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!


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.

      • Rhonda, I’m so glad to connect! You know…I should start searching for thrift store dishes. I love eclectic looks anyway. I hope I have a decent young mom point of view. I feel like I’m stumbling along most of the time. I often wonder if I’ll go back and read my blog posts one day and roll my eyes. But I’m absolutely enjoying documenting it all. Thanks again for reading. I look forward to getting to know your blog more and hopefully grabbing some more fun recipes too! 💖

        • I think your posts are well informed, friendly, easy to read… And don’t you think that’s sort of how you figure it all out– writing it down for other people, distilling your thoughts… And most my favorite dishes come from thrift stores– But I have to Stop! My cupboards are full!! Hope your summer is winding down well… xo

          • Oh absolutely! I have learned so much about myself by writing it down or rather…typing it. Sometimes I get going on a topic that I think will be something I’ll publish and then it ends up becoming just something for me that sits in my drafts. I’ve always journaled so now I’m just enjoying sharing a few things. I love to write! 💖😜
