We’ll make it with whatever the freshest tomatoes are — heirloom, beefsteak or cherry tomatoes.

And we’ll always make it with corn on the cob– cut off the cob.

And while it may be simple, this salad has it all going on…

a little juicy,

a little crunchy,

a  little zesty,

a little creamy,

a lot delicious!

It is a total crowd pleaser!

How to make the Tomato, Corn and Avocado Salad

Like I mentioned, it is a super easy gluten-free recipe! Just two main steps!

  1. Gather all your ingredients and cook the corn.
  2. Add all the chopped ingredients to a bowl, drizzle with olive oil and lime juice and toss!

Two Pro Tips

Pro Tip 1: How to cook corn on the cob : there are lots of ways to make corn. A foolproof way is to bring a large pot of water to a boil, salt it well for this recipe, then boil for 4 minutes.

That will give you the tender crisp corn you want for the salad.

Let cool just enough for you to handle it and slice off the cob. You could also make the corn ahead of time.

Pro Tip 2:  While the corn water boils, slice the tomatoes and let the sliced tomatoes sit in a colander with a sprinkle of salt for just 5-10 mintues. This drains some of the liquid from the tomatoes so that the salad isn’t too watery.

That’s it!

In just 10- 15 minutes you had a summer salad that everyone will rave about!

We eat this salad all summer long.

We’ll whip it up when we’re  “down the shore” (where are my NJ friends?) with family and friends and we’ll enjoy it as part of our dinner whenever we grill or make fish or basically any time!
