AVOCADO TOMATO CORN SALAD 

Ingredients: 

-2 large avocados (diced)

-2 large tomato (diced)

-1/2 purple (or white) onion (diced)

-4 (husked) corn on the cob

-1 bunch fresh basil leaves (chopped)

-1/4 cup olive oil -1/8 cup red wine vinegar

-1/2 tsp granulated garlic

-Pink Himalayan sea salt + ground pepper (to taste!)

Directions: 

  1. In a large bowl, combine: avocados, tomatoes, onion, and basil.

  2. Next... START YOUR GRILL! Yep, we're grilling, sister! On medium heat, spray down your grill with non-stick spray. As your grill is warming up, gently lather your 5 corn on the cob(s) with coconut oil and salt/pepper to taste. Place corn on grill (approx 3-5 minutes on each side or until you have a nice grill to both sides).

  3. Remove corn from grill and let cool. Once cooled, take knife and cut corn kernels off of the cob and pour into the tomato/avocado mixture.

  4. Drizzle mixture with fresh olive oil, vinegar, garlic, and salt/pepper to taste. Toss gently. Cover and let set for 1 hour in your fridge so all of the flavors marinate well together.

  5. Hi, YUM. SO YUM. Dip hearty crackers into the salad or eat plain! Enjoy!
