Oh, yeah, summer won’t be over that easily! This salad is very simple to put together and a perfect side dish (or even a full fledged meal).
Ingredients (serves 4)
- 1-2 corn husks or 1 can of corn (on the cob is WAY better!)
- 2-3 tbsp butter
- Seasoning – I keep this open-ended, because it can be good with so many different flavorings. I chose a BBQ rub, comprised of chili powder, garlic powder, kosher salt, brown sugar, cayenne and Italian seasonings
- 2 avocados, cubed
- tomatoes, diced (I prefer cherry tomatoes, but that’s just my bag)
- Kale leaves
- Mozzarella cheese
- Optional meats: salami, cubed chicken, salmon
Grill up the corn adding butter and seasonings toward the end of its roasting (after about 10 minutes). If it’s not grilling season, it’s just as easy to do this on a stove top, it just tastes better when it’s off the cob. Mix in with avocado, tomatoes, and any other toppings you’d like. I found that the butter coated the whole dish nicely and didn’t require any additional dressing, though I would recommend a squeeze of fresh lime over the whole thing. Enjoy!
