Corn, Tomato and Avocado Summer SaladMartha, Martha, Martha....I get such inspiration from Martha Stewart.
I LOVE Living Magazine and LOVED Everyday Food (no longer in separate publication)...These items bring a smile to my face when I look in my mailbox....then I devour them from cover to cover!
Our Favorite Summer~Time SaladSchool is winding down, the sun is setting later in the evening and I am spending more time outside than inside...ahhh summer is almost here!!
Time for quick, cool meals using fresh, yummy, warm weather produce!
Way back in the July/August 2008 issue of Everyday Food I stumbled upon a recipe for Martha's Tomato, Corn and Avocado Salad. It quickly became a HUGE Fave of my hubby and I.
Todd and I can whip this salad together in about 15 minutes and the combination of flavors is extraordinary and refreshing!
We have tweaked a few things in the recipe over the years...if you would like to see Martha's original click here.
Spectacular Summer Salad
- 2-3 fresh uncooked ears of corn (husked and silk removed)
- 2 pints cherry or grape tomatoes sliced in half
- 1-2 avocados, cut in half, pitted, peeled, and diced into bit sized pieced
- 2 scallions, thinly sliced
- 1 lime
- 1 tablespoon safflower oil
- coarse salt
- ground pepper
Cut tomatoes in half and add to bowl.
Add chopped avocados and scallions to corn and tomato mixture.
Zest half (or more to taste) of a lime. Then add zest and juice of 1 fresh lime to corn, tomato, avocado mixture.
Add safflower oil, salt and pepper. Gently toss to coat.
Amazing Left ~ Over!Todd and I are thrilled to take this salad to lunch the next day...if there is any left!
Normally something made with avocado turns an unappetizing brown but I think the lime keeps it the normal beautiful green, appealing color!
So when the weather is heating up...eat this refreshing salad to cool you down!
I promise it will be a repeat performer each summer!
