This is just so seasonal and yummy. I suppose it is grand (oh! that is what my grandson calls me!) on its own; but I will tell you one thing for certain. I made salsa burgers* and placed this on the side and it was killer!
1 pint grape tomatoes, halved
1 ripe avocado, cubed
2 ears of fresh sweet corn
2 Tbs fresh cilantro, chopped
Honey Lime Dressing:
Zest and juice of 1 lime
3 Tbs olive oil
1 Tbs honey
1/8 t salt
1/4 t fresh ground black pepper
1 clove garlic, minced
Dash of cayenne pepper
Clean corn and cook in boiling water 4 to 5 minutes, until tender.
Cut corn off the cob and let cool.
Combine all dressing ingredients in a small bowl and whisk.
Combine tomatoes, avocado, corn and cilantro in medium size bowl.
Pour dressing over salad and mix gently to evenly coat vegetables.
Let salad sit for 10 minutes to let flavors mingle.
*For the Salsa Burger I combined 1 lb lean ground beef, 1/2 cup salsa, 1/4 cup Panko, 1 t cumin, 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro, sea salt and pepper. Form into 5 patties, and cook in additional salsa in skillet.
