Avocado Corn Salad

Louisa Clements
Avocado corn salad with fresh basil, tomatoes and feta is a refreshing summer salad. 
Prep Time15 minutes
Cook Time3 minutes
Total Time18 minutes
Servings 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 ears of corn, shucked
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 1 very small clove garlic, grated
  • 1/2 jalapeno, seeded and minced
  • 2 avocados, diced
  • 1 1/2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 red onion, finely diced
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta
  • 2 tbsp thinly sliced fresh basil
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Instructions

  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a rolling boil, drop shucked ears of corn into the boiling water and cook for 2-3 minutes. Remove corn from water and run immediately under cold water (or place into an ice bath). Cut kernels off the cob.
  • In a large bow, whisk olive oil with vinegar, garlic and jalapeno. Add corn kernels, avocados, cherry tomatoes, red onion and crumbled feta. Toss to coat in dressing. Sprinkle with basil and salt, toss again and serve.

Notes

Tip: If you're prepping this salad ahead of time, sprinkle the finished salad with the juice of one lime and give it a good stir--you want to ensure the avocado chunks are coated with lime juice to stop them from browning.
