Corn, Avacado and Tomato Salad

There is something so refreshing about summer. One thing that I love during the summer is serving fresh produce from the farmers market- somehow it just tastes better. Now if I could ever figure out how to actually grow my own veggies- it would be even better! This is a recipe that I discovered on the Food Network from Paula Deen. I love it. It is very simple and tasty!

Corn, Avocado, and Tomato Salad
2 cups cooked corn (fresh or frozen)
1 avocado, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
1/2 cup finely diced red onion
2 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp grated lime zest
1 Tbsp fresh lime juice
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
Combine the corn, avocado, tomatoes and onion . Mix together the dressing ingredients in another bowl, pour over the salad and, gently toss to mix.

  1. I love, love love....avacados. The dressing sounds great also.

  2. This is the BEST salad ever! RoJo you passed it on to me about 2 years ago and every time I go to a get together I am required to bring it! It is so easy and so amazingly good that people swarm it once I bring it in! We call it the "Little Sisters Salad" in honor of a salad we had in Kenya that was very very similiar! YUM-O!!
