Sweet Corn and Avocado Salad

My Sweet Corn and Avocado Salad is a refreshing summer salad, and a perfect side dish to compliment barbecued mains. It has balanced sweetness from the corn, richness from the avocado, and bright, tangy flavors from the lime juice and red onion.

Preparation time: 15 minutes

Serves: 6 – 8


  • 2 x 12oz cans or 6 cobs of sweet corn, husk removed
  • 2 large avocados, ripe and cubed into 1/2″ (1 cm) pieces
  • 1 medium red onion, finely chopped
  • 3 limes, juiced
  • 1 sprig of oregano leaves, stalk removed and finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup of finely chopped parsley leaves OR cilantro leaves
  • 1/2 cup quality salsa
  • 1 red chili, seeds removed and finely diced
  • 2-3 pinches of sea salt


  1. Drain corn kernels from can or soak fresh sweet corn in water for 30 minutes (with husk on) and grill on all sides until husk is blackened.  Remove corn from grill and remove husk, and slice the kernels off the cob with a knife into a large serving bowl
  2. Mix remaining ingredients and serve individual portions

Note; this salad actually tastes better when left refrigerated overnight, as the lime juice incorporates into the ingredients and the citrus flavors are allowed to mesh.  You can absolutely make this a day in advance before serving.

    This looks like a wonderful and simple, yet elegant addition to the bacon wrapped chicken breasts which I was going to serve for Valentine’s day, as I’ve already done a crock-pot beef burgundy and a beef Wellington for the past two dinners with fondant potatoes (my favourite). So the chicken should be a nice change of pace for me and my partner for tomorrow night.
    Thanks for the video recipe! The video in addition to the printed list is very helpful!

    Made this along with the bacon wrapped goat cheese stuffed chicken breasts. My partner and I enjoyed a wonderful meal, complimented with candlelight and soft jazz. I look forward to finding more great recipes on this page to prepare. Might I suggest diced red or orange bell peppers for additional colour to the salad?
    Thanks for such a fine offering!

      Hi Stan – I’m super-pleased to hear that these two recipes worked out well for you! Great suggestion of using bell peppers – I’ll try this myself next time. Cheers, Bart
