Corn Tomato and Avocado Salad

I needed to make something for our monthly cooking club that could be made without a kitchen. I decided to do some sort of a side and when I saw this recipe I knew we’d all love it. It’s actually very similar to the summer salsa that I make on a regular basis.

I added cilantro to the dish because everyone loves cilantro, right? I know that people tend to either love it or hate it, and I’m definitely a cilantro lover.

This salad makes a great side dish for any summer cookout. And it’s so easy to throw together. I mixed everything together except the avocado a day in advance. Then right before serving, the avocado is added.

Corn, Tomato, and Avocado Salad – from Cooking This and That – makes 4 servings
10 ounces frozen corn, thawed completely
1 pint cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
2 scallions, thinly sliced
1 avocado, diced
2 tablespoons lime juice
1 tablespoon good quality olive oil
kosher salt and coarse ground black pepper, to taste
cilantro to taste

Combine corn, tomatoes, scallions in large bowl. Whisk together lime juice, olive oil, salt, and pepper (and cilantro) and pour over vegetables. Chill for 1-4 hours.

When ready to serve, add gently fold in avocado and allow salad to come to room temperature. Season again with salt and pepper if needed.

    Perfect! I crave sugar cookies a lot but just can’t handle the rolling out process sometimes.

    These look yummy! My kids are always asking me to make sugar cookies and I start out strong and by the end am regretting making them. This may be the perfect tradeoff.

    Yum! These look delicious and way easier than frosting individual cookies!

    What a great idea – I rarely take the time to make cookies since bars are so much faster and just as tasty. I love all the sprinkles too 🙂

    Just the recipe I was looking for – I may have to try it this week as an Easter treat for my coworkers.

    Anyone who is thinking about making these definitely should. They’re seriously SO GOOD. I just made them Sunday and I’m making them again for Easter.

    Yum, I’ve made these before. They are excellent and soooo much easier. Yours looks good. I’m going to try them with buttercream instead of cream cheese frosting next time.

    I think it will be better to put up the size of the baking pan too.
    Thank you very much for the recipe. =D
