TNT: Corn and Avocado Salad

Here's a yummy one to help you guys beat the heat:

Avocado & Corn Salad

4 or 5 ears of fresh uncooked sweet corn
1/2 cup red onion
1 large avocado
zest & juice from one lime
1/4 cup fresh cilantro
1 teaspoon sea salt
Ground pepper, to taste

Shuck the corn and slice it off the cob. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. I like it best after marinating for a few hours.

If you're not a fan of cilantro, substitute basil.

This would also be a great way to dress up a taco. Or maybe to dip chips in?

It's very similar to the corn and black been salsa I made a little while back and served in grilled avocado halves. Good stuff.

This sounds like it would go really well along side the salsa I make. I'm a huge fan of both avocado and corn so I'm definitely going to have to try this.
