Grilled Corn and Avocado Salad Recipe #SundaySupper

This grilled corn and avocado salad recipe is a snap to throw together. It’s perfect during the summer when corn on the cob is readily available, fresh from the farm. However, today’s supermarkets are carrying corn on the cob in the freezer section, making this dish an option all year long. Oh yeah, today is a Sunday Supper Challenge. The star is summer corn and you can find a ton of some really amazing summer corn recipes at the end of this post.

Grilled Corn and Avocado Salad Recipe

Like so many of my recipes, this salad can be adapted to suit your taste preferences. You could add a little protein such as grilled chicken, fish or keep it vegetarian with black beans to make a complete meal.

In this case, I am using it as a side dish. In fact, I recently brought this one to a party that my brother and sister-in-law were throwing. It was well received and I love being able to contribute something to the party, as any good guest would.


For this recipe I included avocados and baby heirloom tomatoes. I really like the way the sweetness of the corn, combines with the creaminess of the avocados, and the bright acidic flavor of the tomatoes. 


The key to salad is grilling the corn so that it gets a nice smoky flavor.

For added punch and color, I added diced fresh jalapeno peppers and red onion. 

The dressing was a simple vinaigrette made from fresh lime juice, extra virgin olive oil, fresh garlic and chopped cilantro. 


Some many flavors and textures that combine well together, make this grilled corn and avocado salad a feast for the eyes as well as the palate.

Here’s the recipe:
