Grilled Corn & Avocado Salad
This recipe is super easy to put together and it contains things you are likely picking up fresh this week at your local farmer’s market.
2 large ears fresh corn, husks removed
1 large avocado, chopped
1 lb. grape tomatoes, halved
1 medium red onion, halved and sliced thick
¼ cup fresh parsley, roughly chopped
3 tbsp. fresh lime juice
1 tbsp. butter, melted
Salt and pepper, to taste
Preheat the grill. Brush the corn with melted butter.
Place corn and red onion slices on grill over medium heat. Cook until corn kernels become slightly charred, then rotate one-quarter turn every few minutes until each side is done. Flip onions once during cooking. Remove veggies from heat.
With a sharp knife, slice the kernels from the cob. Watch the video clip below for a simple way to slice the kernels.
Put the kernels and red onions in a large salad bowl and set aside. Add the tomatoes, avocado, fresh parsley, and lime juice to the bowl. Season with salt and pepper and then gently combine.
That’s all there is to it! Pretty simple, right?

Helpful Tips for this Grilled Corn Salad:
If corn is not in season, you can use 1 cup of frozen or canned corn (drained) instead. Just cook it according to the packaging.
If you don’t have fresh parsley, fresh basil makes a great substitute.
When picking out an avocado for this salad, choose a firm one. And, when you are mixing the ingredients together, be sure to mix gently so the avocado doesn’t break apart.
