Jason's Corn Salad
Every Saturday evening we pack up our kids, our portable grill, a bottle of wine, beach chairs and tables and head to the beach where we meet friends for dinner. We share laughter, food, recipes and have a friendly "competition" as to who creates the best meal. My favorite undoubtedly is Jason's Corn Salad! Thanks for sharing Jason:o)
1 avocado - diced
1 cup fresh corn kernels
1/4 cup fresh cilantro - chopped
2 TBSP red onion - chopped
1/2 cup fresh squeezed lime juice
1/4 cup honey
1 garlic clove - crushed
1/3 cup olive oil
salt & pepper to taste
Combine corn, avocado, cilantro and red onion in a large bowl and set aside.
In a small bowl, combine the lime juice, honey, garlic, olive oil and salt and pepper. Whisk well until combined.
Pour the vinaigrette over the salad.
Chill 1 hour before serving.
Optional - grill 1 pound of shrimp and toss with salad immediately before serving.
