a couple of weeks ago gideon made this as a side dish along with some salmon. and i immediately said “oh shiiiit”. so we decided to enhance it with a couple more ingredients, and used frozen corn so that it would only take a few minutes to make. like i like.
and unfortunately for me, just like everything, i love it served along with a piece of crusty bread – and then it totally counts as a full meal.
CORN + TOMATO SALAD
1 bag of frozen corn (or you can actually cook corn)
1 ripe avocado
1 package of cherry tomatoes
8 basil leaves, chopped
1/2 red onion
salt + pepper
cook your corn however you want to roll – then chop tomatoes length wise, half of the onion into thin slices and the avocado – mix all together in a large bowl. the ratio is really up to you.
chop the basil and add it to the mix.
squeeze the lime juice and add a couple of tablespoons of oil.
season and let marinade in the fridge (it tastes better cold)
