Cilantro, Lime, Avocado, Corn and Tomato Salad

Share Button

We’ve been eating this salad almost constantly lately in an effort to use up all those yummy garden tomatoes.  We seriously love it.    This salad is simple, healthy, and oh-so-good.  And best of all, it comes together fast! My dad and husband crack me up telling me over and over again that it is one of their favorite dips.  I keep reminding them that it is a salad, but they kind of won me over when they talked me into “garnishing” my salad with tortilla chips.  Turns out, this salad can stand on its own two feet as a dip, as well.  And honestly, I’ll let my husband call veggies anything he wants as long as he eats them, right?

( I would probably chop all the ingredients a little smaller if I were serving it as a dip).

Cilantro, Lime, Avocado, Corn and Tomato Salad
Submitted by Mindy ~ The Sisters Cafe

2 cups of grape tomatoes cut in halves
1 ripe avocado, chopped
2 cups of corn (fresh off the cob is best)
2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped

Lime Dressing:
Juice of 1 lime (~3 tablespoons)
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
Dash of cayenne pepper

Combine the tomato halves, chopped avocado, corn, and chopped cilantro in a bowl.  Set aside.  Whisk all the dressing ingredients in a small bowl.  Drizzle over salad, then gently mix (to avoid mashing the avocados) until well coated.   Let the salad sit for 10-15 minutes prior to serving to allow the flavors to mingle.
