Raw Corn and Avocado Salad

Raw Corn Salad

Raw Corn And Avocado Salad – Clean & Delicious

Did you know that you can eat raw corn?

It’s true, raw corn is sweet and crisp and makes for a fresh and delish Summer salad.  The key to raw corn is that you have to make sure that’s it’s fresh and in season! Fresh, seasonal corn will ensure a sweet and tender salad (yum!).

And who doesn’t love Summer corn and tomatoes together?  These are some of Jersey’s finest Summer produce, so to all my East coast peeps out there, be sure to give this salad try!

As for me, I absolutely love the crisp corn paired with the creamy avocado.  The avocado adds so much depth and richness that there’s no need to add any extra oil, a fat squish of lime and it’s good to go!

If you’re not a fan of cilantro, feel free to swap in some parsley or basil, both would make a tasty substitution.

I love serving this salad with Grilled Flank Steak or some Honey Lime Chicken.  Yet another Clean and Delicious salad perfect for some Summer entertaining!
