Tomato Avocado Corn Salad

TOMATO AVOCADO CORN SALAD

Perfect for a BBQ, a lunch, or a potluck, this Tomato Avocado Corn Salad is an easy and light summer treat brimming with amazing textures and flavors. It makes a great side dish with grilled meats, but it’s also just as good all on its own. I can eat a ton of it. 🤷‍♀️ 

Our Corn Salad is a wonderfully quick-fix salad, without having to cook a single thing and it comes together in minutes. It’s probably one of the simplest recipes I have on Diethood, but honestly, this salad just felt like a great way to kick off this hot summer day. 

If you were planning on having salad today, you.must.make.this.one. 😊Grab some juicy cherry tomatoes, sweet corn, creamy avocado, firm cucumber, and tasty red onions, so we can get this recipe started. 

Corn Salad

HOW TO MAKE TOMATO AVOCADO CORN SALAD

I know that fresh corn right off-the-cob is probably the best there is, and if you have some cooked, cool, but if not, grab a bag of frozen sweet corn kernels and thaw 3 to 4 cups of it.

Wanna use canned corn? SURE! Just rinse it really good. 

  • Once you have decided on the corn, transfer the kernels to a large salad bowl.
  • Next, you want to slice up an entire English cucumber into half moons. Place those in the salad bowl with the corn.
  • Then, move onto the cherry tomatoes. We will need 2 to 3 cups of cherry tomatoes; slice those in half and transfer to the salad bowl.
  • Grab 2 average-size avocados; peel and remove pit, then cut into cubes. Add prepared avocado to the salad bowl.
  • Red onions will also make their way into this salad. You’ll want to cut thin slices of about 1/2 of an onion and stir those into the salad bowl. Set aside.

HOW TO MAKE LIME CUMIN VINAIGRETTE

  • In a mixing bowl combine olive oil, lime juice, lemon juice, garlic, cumin, chili powder, salt, and pepper.
  • Pour dressing over salad and mix until thoroughly incorporated.
  • Cover salad bowl with plastic wrap and set in the fridge for 1 hour. 
  • Stir, garnish with chopped fresh cilantro, and serve.

CAN I MAKE CORN SALAD AHEAD OF TIME?

Yes! This salad can be made a day ahead of time. The longer it sits, the better it tastes, but I wouldn’t keep it for longer than one night in the fridge. STIR before serving.

This salad is filled with fresh summer flavors. Serve it as a side to grilled chicken or fish, you can also serve it as a dip, or in tacos!
