Corn Tomato Avocado Salad

I love salads not only for their fresh plant-based flavor, but for how easy and quick they are to throw together! Grab some lettuce and combine with your favorite fruits, veggies, nuts and seeds, and you’ve got a delicious, nutrient-dense meal! Of course you can always get creative and incorporate grilled or cooked veggies and well-sourced meats, but these are most definitely optional steps if you’re short on time, or simply want to keep it simple.

Like mentioned above, while the following steps are optional, here’s what we did that really set this salad apart in flavor!

The BEST Corn Tomato Avocado Salad

Do you have some spare time, and want to spend it on achieving the best possible flavor for your Corn Tomato Avocado Salad? Here are the steps we took to really make it stand out, with a few alternative options in case you’re low on time.

Don’t Skip the Grill

Cooking fresh corn on the cob and the cherry tomatoes on a grill will add that fresh, smokey, grilled flavor we all crave and love. While definitely requiring some more effort in time, if you have a few extra minutes to spare, its totally worth it!

Time Saver Tip: Short on time? Feel free to used canned corn instead of fresh, and either saute the corn and tomatoes on a cast iron skillet, or skip the heat all together, and place them straight on the salad! While you won’t get that exact freshly grilled flavor you would get from a real grill, your salad with still be bursting with fresh, plant-based flavor!

Don’t Skimp on the Homemade Dressing

We’ve all heard that dressing is “fattening” and unhealthy. Because of this, we’ve been trained to enjoy only a light drizzle of dressing, or may even feel pressured to skip it all together. Well, the truth is that Most store-bought (or restaurant) dressings are very unhealthy (although there are definitely exceptions). Because of this, we started making our dressings from home! This way, we choose the ingredients, and can enjoy them without limiting ourselves to just a tablespoon or two.

Time Saver Tip: While we encourage getting in the habit of making dressings at home, and always having them prepped and ready-to-go in the fridge, we totally get that life gets in the way sometimes. Luckily, there are many brands out there that offer decently healthy alternatives that we like to keep on hand for busy days.

Make this Salad Your Own

While the ingredients and measurements in this recipe pair together in the most delicious and satisfying way, there are time I like to switch it up, and try something different! After all, one of the best parts about a salad is that it’s nearly impossible to ruin! Feel free to get creative, and swap out ingredients and measurements in this recipe to really make it your own.

Honey Lime Dressing

For this recipe, we chose to make a Honey Lime Dressing, which we think is the perfect compliment for this Corn Tomato Avocado Salad! Filled with healthy fats and the perfect mixtures of spice, this dressing brings out the flavor of the dish, without the empty calories!

Unlike typical creamy salad dressings, my Honey Lime Dressing is dairy free and gets its creaminess from “superfood” hemp seeds. The dressing takes less than 5-minutes to make and always goes over well with everyone, even our not-so-into-clean-eating guests. We promise, everyone will love this recipe!
