Ingredients

  • 4 cups of cherry tomatoes halved or quartered
  • 1.5 cups of frozen or canned corn kernels
  • 1/3 cup of red onion thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup of cilantro roughly chopped (or sub other herb such as green onion or parsley)
  • 2 limes juiced
  • 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1.5 ripe avocados chopped into small chunks

Instructions

  1. If you are using frozen corn kernels, boil a small pot of water. Add the corn to the boiling water and reduce the heat. Boil gently for about 5 minutes, or until the corn is tender. If you are using canned corn, skip this step.

  2. Add the tomatoes, corn, red onion, and cilantro (or other herbs) to a large mixing bowl. Toss to combine.

  3. Squeeze the fresh lime juice into the bowl. Add the olive oil and a bit of salt and pepper.

  4. Toss the salad to combine. Taste and adjust seasonings.

  5. This salad tastes best when chilled. Just before serving, chop the avocado and add it to the salad, then gently toss and serve!
