Summer corn & avocado salad recipe

RDN Lisa Perry shares a simple, healthful summer salad recipe. Follow her on Facebook.

Summer is in full swing, and my garden is providing a bountiful crop of tomatoes and cucumbers. If you don’t have a veggie garden, this is a great time of year to explore your local farmer’s market. This is a simple salad to showcase some of that beautiful summer produce.

Summer corn & avocado salad

  • 2 ears sweet corn, grilled, roasted, or steamed
  • 1.5 c small tomatoes (grape, cherry, pear), cut in half
  • 1/4 c thinly sliced red onion (or sweet)
  • 1 c cucumber, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 avocado, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 T chopped fresh cilantro
  • Juice from ½ lime
  • ¼ t cumin
  • Salt & pepper to taste (substitute cayenne pepper for a spicy kick!)

Stand corn on end to cut kernels from cob. Toss ingredients together in bowl. Makes about 4 servings. (Don’t have access to a grill? Simply thaw frozen corn and toss it in!)
