I have a little raised garden bed in my backyard where five things are growing; basil, oregano, two kinds of thyme and the tiniest tomatoes imaginable. Here in Las Vegas I haven’t had much luck gardening, but I’m enchanted by my little planter. Corn, tomato, avocado salad combines fresh corn on the cob and avocados, with ingredients from my planter.
I think the basil and tomatoes taste extra good ‘cause they came from my backyard! There's nothing like summer salads with garden fresh ingredients.
Do you like Mexican Corn Salad?
If you like Mexican corn salad, or Mexican street corn salad, you'll love our corn, tomato and avocado salad. I like this corn salad for its simple ingredients and fresh taste.
How to cook the corn
Submerge corn in boiling water with ½ teaspoon salt. Boil for two minutes then remove corn from water. When cooled, slice corn off cob.
The dressing makes the salad
In my experience, the dressing is what makes a salad a stand out. Corn, tomato and avocado salad is complemented by the delicious blend of lime, olive oil, vinegar, herbs and spices. Grab the taste of summer one more time while you can!
