Grilled Corn, Tomato and Avocado Salad is a combination of some of the best flavors of summer in a healthy side dish perfect for your next cookout.
Eating your colors is easy with this delicious summer salad. Sure, you can use frozen corn and enjoy it anytime of year, but it is at it’s best when corn and tomatoes are in season. And grilling always makes everything taste better.
And this salad is so easy. Just grill up the corn while you are grilling your main course and prep the salad while you let the meat or poultry rest.

Rotate the corn a quarter turn every few minutes until each side is slightly charred. Flip red onion once while corn is cooking.
Remove from heat and slice kernels from cob with a sharp knife. Discard cobs and transfer onions and corn kernels to a large salad bowl.
Add tomatoes, avocado, fresh parsley, and lime juice to the corn. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste, and toss gently to combine.
