corn avocado and tomato salad

If there was ever a salad that signified the end of summer, it would be this tomato salad with corn and avocado. It’s also incredibly simple to prepare. You just halve some cherry tomatoes, add the kernels of a couple of ears of cooked, fresh corn, dice up some cukes and avocado, and toss all that with a simple vinaigrette of olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper and a splash of sherry vinegar.

For this tomato salad with corn and avocado recipe, try to select avocados that are ripe but still pretty firm. Fresh corn is always best, but it’s a little past season here, so you may have to go with a few frozen ears. For the herbs, you can mix and match however suits you best. This salad lends itself well to a mix of basil and parsley, but you can definitely throw in some cilantro. If you do that, switch up the lemon juice for lime for a Mexican twist. I like to use a pint of those adorable, multicolored heirloom cherry tomatoes for this salad, but if you can only find regular red ones, by all means, use those!

One of the best things about this salad (aside from how easy it is) is that it’s absolutely beautiful. Look at that riot of color! Thanks to the multicolored tomatoes, you’ve got shades of red, yellow, and orange. You can even add some chopped sweet bell pepper, if you’d like. It’s perfect for a picnic or potluck. Bring it along for a beach lunch. Take it to a Memorial or Labor Day gathering, or make it simply just because. I’ve already made it twice this month, and I’m eyeing a third.
