I threw this salad together with ingredients I had in my kitchen one evening. This light and tasty alternative to a regular salad will accompany Mexican dishes perfectly. This also works well served as a dip with tortilla chips and tastes even better a day after making it. Serve as a side dish or as a dip with chips and salsa.

7.10.17 Corn and tomatoes are in season right now, so I cut my corn off of the cob rather than using canned corn. I actually forgot to add the olive oil. When I realized that, I tasted the salad, and just left it out because I thought it tasted so darn fresh and was simply spot on tasty as is. Omitting the oil also had to drop the calories and fat (which weren’t bad to begin with I will say)! We just loved this, and this was the perfect side kick to some grilled chicken. Read More

We loved this recipe! I made exactly as the recipe stated with the exception of using a shallot instead of white onion. The flavors worked well together and was perfect for a light summer meal along with the Margarita Grilled Shrimp recipe from this site. This would be even better with fresh corn. Read More

Made recipe exact except cut kernels off 3 left over corn on cob and only one tomato. Diced avocado and tomato smaller than original image. Was fantastic as a summer salsa with grilled chicken fajita burrito and rice. Kind of like Chipotle. A new fav in my house and great way to use left over (cooked) corn on cob. Read More

I also prefer frozen corn. Tastes fresher. I add a little extra lime juice cause we like it that way. Great salad that gets requested every time we get together. Read More
