Corn Tomato Avocado Salad

I have been dreaming to make mexican avocado salad for years. I just didn’t know how to cook corn. When I was little in Ukraine, we boiled corn but never did we grill it and then cut off the cob. We rubbed ear of steaming corn with butter burning our little fingers. It melted in front of our eyes. Then we sprinkled corn with salt and sank our teeth into it.

This corn tomato avocado salad is delicious, refreshing, has a hint of lime in every bite and is absolutely fantastic without cilantro but rather with green onion (naked truth I discovered with avocado salad). Perfect salad for a hot summer day!

How to Cook Corn on the Cob

This summer I have discovered 2 other ways of cooking corn besides boiling it on the stove for half an hour.

  1. You can cook corn in our beloved Instant Pot in 2 minutes under high pressure and with quick release. I promise it works because I was very sceptical about 2 minutes and other stuff.
  2. Grill corn without the husk on medium heat for 20 minutes, turning every 5 minutes or so.
  3. Lovely reader, Connie, suggested to microwave it (if you have one, I don’t) – “Cut off the end that connects to the stalk part. Put it in the microwave with the husk still on and everything. Just chop and throw it in. 4 minutes cook time and then you can pick it up by the end and it will slide out of the husk. No strings.” Thank you and who knows maybe there is a microwave with teenage boys in my future.

Can I Use Frozen corn avocado salad black bean Salad?

Now I can make corn and avocado salad all summer long because using canned or frozen corn is sinful during these months. However, there is no more magic corn in fall-winter months than a giant bag of frozen organic corn from Costco for $12. Of course, you can. Canned corn? Meh, no.

How to Make Corn Avocado Salad

  1. Cook corn by boiling it for 15 minutes or by grilling on medium heat for 20 minutes, turning every 5 minutes. Or even better – make Instant Pot corn in 2 minutes! Let cool and remove corn kernels off the cob. 
  2. In a large salad bowl, add corn, cucumber, tomato, avocado, green onion, lime zest and juice, olive oil, salt and pepper. Stir gently and serve cold.
