Summer will be here before you know it! Here is a wonderful recipe to enjoy on those warm spring/summer days!!!

Here's a healthy recipe for the warm temperatures.

Grilled Corn, Avocado and Tomato Salad with Honey Lime Dressing


1 pint grape tomatoes
1 ripe avocado
2 ears of fresh sweet corn
2 tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped
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


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.

1. Add all the dressing ingredients in a small bowl and whisk to combine. Set aside.
2. 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.

I make this exact same recipe all the time! Well, not EXACT -- I don't put in cilantro, and I use a different dressing (usually Asian Sesame, but sometimes Italian). It's so delicious. I'm embarrassed when someone asks for the recipe. The recipe? Uh, you see everything that's in it.

ETA: Sometimes I bulk it up with chickpeas.
ETA2: Oh, the "recipe" -- as it came to me -- called for fresh corn. I'm lazy, though, so I just open a can of corn and call it done.
ETA3: But other than all that, EXACTLY like yours. LOL!

I make one similar - with black beans a jalapeno with lime juice along with little of the pickled jalapeno juice. Yummy
