I can’t get enough of this stuff! I first made this to go with my Grilled Mahi but found it’s just as yummy on it’s own. We serve it with simple grilled chicken and it’s fabulous with Fajitas. The lime keeps the avocado nice and green and the honey adds just a touch of sweetness to the corn.
The corn is shucked and tossed right in. No need to cook it….leave it crunchy, it’s what makes this salad so fresh tasting. Gotta taste test this one before serving. Add a bit more salt or sugar if your corn is less sweet than you like.
No fancy schmancy gadgets (’cause I don’t use them), just a nice sharp knife to remove the corn from the cob.
I used a Poblano pepper which I love and guess what? Who grew her own pepper? Yup, little old farmer me! I tied a bandana around my neck, headed out to my container and plucked my one, and only one Poblano pepper off the vine. Oh the life of a container gardner…exhausting! Honey! Grab me some sweet tea I am tuckered out!
The vinaigrette is mild but adds a distinctive flavor. It also keeps everything all nice and crunchy for a few days in the fridge.
Great way to use the last of this summer corn!
