I recently tried three of the summer salad recipes from Martha Stewart Living. As usual, I altered a bit – either because I was missing an ingredient or a step was more convenient. This one received rave reviews at our house.
Grilled Corn and Avocado Salad
4 ears of fresh corn
1 Ripe (yet firm) avocado, sliced
1Tbsp fresh lime juice
1/4C chopped fresh cilantro
Grill the corn for about 15 min, turn often to get grill marks on all sides,
cut kernels off cob (I cut the kernels then sauteed in a grill pan – both ways tasted great)
Slice the avocado, I sprinkled the lime juice over the slices – the original recipe calls for the juice to be mixed with the corn also – my avocado browned that way.
Toss corn, avocado, and cilantro and serve – so easy. It’s a light fresh salad, that goes well with everything we’ve tried.
I can’t wait until the local produce stands are selling fresh corn (picked that morning) – it will be even better.
