Have you ever made something that is so good you just can’t get enough of it?
That is how I am feeling about this fresh corn and avocado salad. I’ve made it three times in the last five days . . .that is no exaggeration! I really can’t get enough of it.
I took it to a party Thursday night and we all went berserk over it. I made it again Sunday night for my husband’s birthday dinner and my mom and mother-in-law couldn’t get enough of it. In between bites they managed to mumble things like, “oh my gosh, this is sooo good”, “I could make a meal out of this”, “I need this recipe”, etc., it was so funny to watch them eat it. They were in total salad heaven. I knew they would love it.
I couldn’t wait to share this with you, so I made it again Monday, took some pictures and then I’m pretty sure I ate almost half the bowl . . . .again, not exaggerating! I love everything about this salad, especially the fresh corn and avocado. Funny thing is, I hated avocados until just a few years ago. I don’t know what happened, maybe I just finally got smart. I can’t get enough of them, they are so delicious. All those years I missed out on them . . . what was I thinking?
This salad is so easy to throw together and it makes the perfect side for any meal.
- 5 ears corn , shucked and corn silks removed
- 10- oz container cherry tomatoes , halved
- 3 avocados , diced and sprinkled with lemon juice to prevent browning
- 3.5- oz container feta cheese
- ½ large cucumber , peeled and diced
- ½ cup cilantro , chopped
- 6 Tbsp. olive oil
- 2 Tbsp. red wine vinegar
- 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
- ½ tsp. salt , or more to taste
- ⅛ tsp. pepper
Fill a large pot with water and bring to a boil.
Place ears of corn in the boiling water and cook for 4 minutes. Using tongs, remove immediately from water and set aside to cool about 5 minutes.
When corn is cool enough to handle, cut kernels off using a sharp knife.
In a large bowl combine corn, cherry tomatoes, avocados, feta cheese, cucumber and cilantro. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
In a small glass jar, combine olive oil, red wine vinegar, garlic powder, salt and pepper and shake up. Just before serving, pour over salad and gently toss together. Serve and enjoy!
