Corn Salad Mix-up

Another quick, easy, delicious recipe favorite here! This is a variation/combination of two corn salads I've posted before- the corn & avocado salad and the fresh corn salad. Very easy!

Ingredients: (serves 2)
  • 3 large ears sweet corn
  • 1 cup sliced cherry tomatoes
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 medium avocado, sliced into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 Tbsp fresh basil, chopped
  • 1 Tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1 cup black beans
  • ~1 Tbsp lime juice, fresh
  • Sea salt to taste
  1. Shuck & steam the corn until just tender- let boil for about 3 minutes. Remove & rinse with cold water. Let further cool.
  2. Remove the corn from the cob by slicing off in strips using a large knife. 
  3. Combine corn, tomatoes, beans in large bowl and add oil, salt, and lime juice; toss lightly. 
  4. Add fresh herbs just before serving.

I actually did not have black beans, but think they would go nicely with this dish; instead, for protein, I added in about a cup of chic peas when we ate this. It's a versatile base dish that you can do a lot with!
