Corn Salad with Avocado

Avocado Corn Salad is a great side dish, appetizer, or a light and healthy lunch option. So, I am excited to be sharing this recipe for you to make this unique meal at home. 

I personally like to make this at home every time I feel like my meals are becoming too repetitive. Not to mention, avocadoes and corn are great for those who are on a diet and want to maintain eating whole food.

You should definitely try to make this recipe to add in your go-to dishes. This has minimal ingredients, but the taste is extremely to die for.

How to cook corn on the cob?

Knowing how to cook corn is essential in making this dish. This summer staple is quite easy to make, and I am going to be showing you how it is done. 

  • Fill a large pot with water enough for the cob to submerge. Dash it with a generous amount of salt. You do not have to worry if the water is too salty since it would not absorb everything. 
  • Let the water boil. While waiting, clean your corn by pulling off the husk and removing all the strings. 
  • When the water is boiling, drop the cleaned cob for 20 to 30 minutes. Time accordingly since you do not want it to overcook.

How to make the best Avocado Corn Salad

  • Combine ingredients. Toss the cherry tomatoes, sliced corn, cucumbers, sliced avocadoes, red onion, and cilantro inside a large bowl.
  • Make the dressing. In a separate container, put in olive oil, lime juice, minced garlic, and seasoning. Mix until well-combined.
  • Serve. Drizzle the dressing on top of the bowl. You can toss it and let it chill or serve immediately.

How to store it?

After making Avocado Corn Salad, you can refrigerate it immediately before serving. However, if you intend to preserve it for a longer period, there may be some extra steps that you should follow. 

What I do is put the dish inside a container and drape it with a paper towel. I find that this helps prevent excess moisture that may cause the food to spoil faster. I then wrap the top of the container with plastic or saran wrap to seal it off. 

Using this technique, I can make the dish last up to three days while keeping it fresh and delicious. Photo of healthy avocado corn salad.

Recipe tips:

  • For added flavor, you can top the dish with feta cheese and basil. This provides creaminess and fragrance to the already scrumptious meal. 
  • Make sure that the water is boiling hot before putting the cob in. You want it to come out as juicy as possible and putting it in boiling water avoids a saggy outcome. 
  • Adding greens such as lettuce, particularly iceberg or the romaine type, also brings a unique crunch to this dish.

Two things I always love summer corn and ripe avocados. Putting them together in a salad is a smart and healthy idea.
