Today’s recipe is for a delicious Avocado, Tomato, Corn Salad that’s perfect to enjoy this time of year. In Mexico, we love avocados. We even have some jokes about how disappointed we feel after eating a meal and realizing that we forgot about that perfectly ripe avocado that we had in the kitchen! Meals are just so much better with a few slices of avocado, we even call it the “Mexican butter.” They have good fats and nutrients, plus you can’t deny they’re delicious. Avocados are the perfect spring and summer addition to your meals and salads, even though we eat them year-round.

Sometimes I wish I could have an avocado tree like my mom does in Mexico, and be able to just go outside and cut a ripe and nutritious avocado! Lucky for me, I can find Avocados From Mexico at my local grocery store.

What about you? Do you like to add avocados to your daily meals? Do you use them for your dishes on special occasions or when entertaining with your family and friends? I hope you do. Spring and summer are perfect for family cookouts and picnics, so don’t forget to add avocados to your meals!
Avocado, Tomato, Corn Salad Recipe

4 SERVINGS
INGREDIENTS:

10 oz. Cherry Tomatoes
2 Ears of corn
1 Large ripe Avocados From Mexico
3 Radishes
1 Small Cucumber
2 Sprigs of fresh mint
4 Sprigs of Cilantro
2 Tablespoons Vegetable or Olive Oil
2 Tablespoons Lime juice
Salt and pepper to taste

NOTES:

  • This is not a Traditional Mexican Recipe, but it uses several ingredients that are commonly used in Mexican dishes. 
  • During the summer time, I like to add Purslane or Watercress. If you can find them in your area, try adding them to this salad, they give it an extra rich, earthy flavor.

DIRECTIONS:

Avocado, Tomato, Corn Salad Recipe

1. Cut off the kernels from the corn, slicing from the top of the cob. Place them in a saucepan with 2 cups of boiling water and cook for 2 minutes. Remove from heat, place the corn in a colander, and immerse in cold water to stop the cooking. Drain the corn and place in a large bowl.

2. Cut the cherry tomatoes in half (it is easier if you slice them from the top instead of horizontally).

3. Thinly slice the radishes and the cucumbers, and place in the bowl with the corn. Remove the leaves from the sprigs of mint and cilantro. I like to add them whole, but you can also finely chop them. Add the rest of the ingredients.

4. To prepare the dressing, whisk together the oil, lime juice, salt, and pepper.

5. Cut the avocado in half, and remove the pit. Slice or dice, according to your preference. Set aside.

6. Just before serving, pour the dressing over the salad ingredients and stir. Taste to check if it needs more salt or pepper. Finally, add the sliced (or diced) avocado and gently toss into the salad. Serve immediately and enjoy!
