Pinterest Tested-Grilled Corn, Avocado and Tomato Salad with Honey Lime Dressing

Yummy & Healthy! A perfect refreshing salad for summer
Original recipe here.

The Salad:
  • 1 pint grape tomatoes
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 2 ears of fresh sweet corn ( I used canned and just fried it in the skillet)
  • 2 tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped
  • Remove husks from corn and grill over medium heat for 10 minutes. The corn should have some brown spots and be tender and not mushy. Cut the corn off the cob then scrape the cob with the back of your knife to get the juices. Set aside and let cool. Slice the tomatoes in half. Dice the avocado and chop the cilantro.

    The Dressing
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 3 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • Sea salt and fresh cracked pepper, to taste
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • Dash of cayenne pepper
  • Add all the dressing ingredients in a small bowl and whisk to combine. Set aside.

    Combine the sliced tomatoes, avocado, cilantro and grilled corn and honey lime dressing and mix gently so everything is evenly coated. Be careful not to mash the avocados. Let the salad sit for 10-15 minutes to let flavors mingle. Enjoy.
