Cucumber Avocado Corn Salad with Cilantro Lime Dressing

Summer is my favorite time to enjoy simple salads like this Cucumber Avocado Corn Salad. It requires minimal (to no) cooking and comes together in minutes. Which is wonderful if you’re not only on a time crunch, but also looking to keep the heat outside!

This salad is made with fresh corn on the cob, cucumber, cherry tomatoes, scallions, and avocado. All of which are tossed in a delicious Cilantro Lime Olive Oil Dressing.

Love in Salad Form

Does anyone else notice the love that went into this recipe? Can you see it? 😉 Consider this a Where’s Waldo search hunt but in food form! HAHA! If you look closely at the top left of this photo, you can see a heart! <3

Completely unintentional! I didn’t notice it until I had the images uploaded and I was going through them to edit.

So I guess you could say I put my heart into not just what I make, but my work as well. 😉 And could it be anymore fitting that it’s on a piece of avocado? Because who doesn’t love avocado?

I know there are some out there that don’t and I am completely baffled by that every single time I run across someone.

Salad Tips:

  • Add the avocado when ready to serve to prevent browning.
  • This salad is best served immediately. I have kept it for up to 2 days in my fridge, but it’s truly best served fresh.
  • As mentioned above, this salad can be a no-cook recipe if you swap the corn on the cob (which is boiled on the stovetop) with a bag of frozen corn that has been thawed.
  • You can swap lime juice for lemon juice, as well as cilantro for parsley. I know that some people are partial to cilantro.
  • It is best to add all ingredients, including the dressing, together first and then add the avocado last. Lightly tossing as its added.

Ingredients

Salad:

  • 2 corn on the cob cooked
  • 1 large cucumber sliced thin
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes halved
  • 2 medium avocados peeled, pitted, and diced
  • 1 large scallion or 2 medium, chopped

Dressing:

  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste - I used 1/2 and 1/4 tsps
  • 1/4 cup lime juice freshly squeezed
  • 1/3 cup fresh cilantro chopped

Instructions

  1. Place a large pot of water over high heat and bring to a boil.

  2. Add the corn and leave to boil for 5 minutes. Remove from heat, strain, and run the corn under cold water to cool.

  3. Once the corn is cool to the touch, cut the corn from the cob and set aside to allow further cooling.

  4. While you're waiting, combine remaining ingredients for the salad in a large bowl, saving the avocado to be added last.

  5. You can add the dressing together in a small bowl and then toss with the salad or add it directly to the dish one ingredient at a time.

  6. Add the corn and finally the diced avocado. Toss lightly to thoroughly coat.

  7. Garnish with an extra squeeze of lime juice, cilantro, and/or parmesan cheese. Serve immediately.
