Heirloom Tomato, Corn and Avocado Salad with Lime Jalapeño Dressing
We are all ready for BBQ season with lots of new salads and side dishes! This one is right up our alley because as usual it's EASY and delicious. Our favorite two things that every recipe should be!
1 bag frozen sweet corn, thawed
1 box of heirloom cherry tomatoes, halved
2 perfectly ripe avocados, diced into large chunks
In a large bowl combine thawed corn, halved tomatoes and diced avocado. Pour Jalapeño Lime Dressing over the top and stir to coat corn, tomatoes and avocado evenly. Serve immediately or cover and chill for up to 1 hour.
*If you want to make this ahead combine corn and tomatoes with dressing and chill overnight. Add avocado and toss right before serving.
Lime Jalapeño Dressing:
2 teaspoons ground cumin
5 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon jalapeño, seeded and chopped finely
1 garlic clove, grated
1 teaspoon coarse salt
Whisk together all ingredients and pour over Heirloom Tomato, Corn and Avocado Salad.
