Ingredients

  • 2 ears corn
  • 2 Cups diced avocado
  • Juice from 1 lime
  • 2 Tablespoons minced cilantro
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 Teaspoon olive oil
  • Sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper, to taste

Directions

Over a high flame on your outdoor grill, char the ears of con until lightly blackened. This will take 4 minutes per side. Cut the corn away from the cob using a sharp knife and plenty of caution. In a medium bowl, combine the corn, avocado, lime juice, cilantro, green onion, and olive oil. Add sea salt and cracked black pepper to taste. Set aside until ready to serve.

Corn Shopping Tip

Look for vegetables that are firm and bright in color – avoid those that are wilted or have wrinkled skins, which are signs of age.

Corn Cooking Tip

Vegetable should typically be cooked as quickly as possible, as they can become bland and mushy, and lose vitamins and minerals.
