Summer Corn and Avocado Salad
It's finally summer and what better to eat than fresh sweet corn? I don't know about you but I am a sucker for anything corn related. Avocados are a fantastic pairing for corn, because the corn is sweet and crispy where the avocado is buttery and rich, making them a nice counterpart in almost any dish. Tonight, I prepared a simple chopped salad using fresh Parmesan bacon, hard boiled egg, carrots, red onion and sweet corn sliced directly off the ear. Main course salads are great in the summer because they're light, fresh, easy and don't create a heat storm in your kitchen!. Experiment with what's in season before tossing your next salad!
