Corn, Tomato, and Avocado Salad

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Sunshine Sweet Corn. I received a gift card to purchase a product sample to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating.

Nothing says spring quite like a fresh corn salad or BBQ served with a side of grilled corn on the cob. My family looks forward to all the fresh produce available in the spring. I love stopping by the farmer’s stand in town for the freshest of the harvest. Sweet corn is one of our favorites, and I am glad to see it both at the farmer’s market and the grocery store. I love that it only takes a few minutes to get sweet corn cooked to perfection and onto the table – whether your are serving it boiled or grilled. If you’re cutting the corn off the cob for a recipe or like in my house have kids who don’t like to bit into the cob, I have a simple kitchen tip for you to easily remove the corn.

Sweet Corn, Tomato, and Avocado Salad Recipe

Kitchen Tip: Stand the shucked corn cob upright, with the tip of cob placed in the center hole of a bundt pan. Holding the cob steady, use a sharp knife and make long downward strokes on the cob, separating the kernels from the cob. Easy peasy – and if you have a non-stick bundt pan the corn will slide right out!

Sweet Corn, Tomato, and Avocado Salad is a side dish that I have been preparing for many years.  I was excited to make it last week (the first of many times this season), when asked to create a recipe using Sunshine Sweet Corn. It’s the perfect side dish for just about any meal. I particularly like to make it when we have friends over for a backyard BBQ. It’s always a crowd pleaser!

  • This sounds and looks so good. I can’t wait til the fresh corn is picked. That isn’t until late July. But I can wait. There’s nothing like using veggies from the garden.

  • Yet another for the Springpad Recipes notebook, just in time for the warm weather. We love avocado but only have a couple of good recipes. Thanks for this and the bunt pan tip!
