This salad is super easy. Basically, you need fresh corn (not canned!), avocados, and bell peppers. I like using red and yellow bell peppers because they provide color and they are a bit sweeter. I also added jalapenos (optional) to kick it up a notch. Finally, I added some scallions. You can use onions too, if you have no scallions on hand.
1 red bell pepper
1 yellow bell pepper
4 ears of corn
1-2 stalks of scallions
1/2 cup cilantro chopped
Dice the peppers and chop the cilantro and scallions. Thinly slice the jalapeno. Briefly cook the corn in the microwave (see directions here) and cut the kernels off. Cut up the avocados into large chunks (it doesn’t really matter how pretty they are because they will mostly become mashed up). Mix the diced vegetables with the avocados, mix in the lime juice, and season to taste with salt and pepper!
Add cilantro and scallions & mix them in.
That’s it! The avocados and corn alone give the dish plenty of flavor. Serve immediately!
The lime juice preserves the bright green color of the avocado, preventing it from oxidizing and turning brown.
