Fresh Corn Salad

This salad is absolutely AMAZING!! Great for a BBQ or anytime!  You have to use fresh corn, just has so much more taste and freshness.

 
I saw this on Pinterest, but didn't bother to make the dressing exact, cause my boyfriend doesn't like alot of dressing on his food, so I just used fresh lime juice, salt and pepper, and a bit of rice vinegar. The avocados add their own creaminess to it, you don't need to add oil! So much healthier! Plus I omitted the cilantro cause I'm not a fan, but it would be great in this salad if you like it.

First start with roasting your corn in the oven, husks and all!!! This is an easy way to cook your corn instead of boiling it.


  Keeping the husks on basically steams the corn inside, and makes it 10x easier to peel off afterwards. Plus your kitchen will smell like fresh corn, so yummy!!


While your corn is roasting (20 mins or less if you want more crunchiness which I do!)...finely dice all your other ingredients. Red pepper, red onion, fresh jalapeno, avocado and yellow pepper. I squeezed a bit of lime juice on the avocado to keep from browning while the corn was finishing.



Once the corn is done, peel it and then de-cob it!! Easiest way to not make a mess, or slip and cut yourself is to stand the cob up inside your bowl of veggies and run your knife downwards and the bowl catches it all!


Then just finish off with 1 lime juiced, salt and pepper, a couple splashes of rice vinegar and mix well! Easy!  Also added some crumbled Feta cheese!

I served this with my handmade Sweet Potato Bean Burgers, what a great dinner! Check yesterdays blog post for instructions on those 'burgers'!
