Avocado Corn and Tomato Salad

  • Prep Time: 20 mins
  • Cook Time: 5 mins
  • Total Time: 25 minutes
  • Yield: 6-8 servings


  • 4 ears of corn
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 pint grape tomatoes
  • 2 medium avocados
  • ½ cup very thinly sliced red onion
  • ½ cup canned black beans, drained and rinsed
  • ½ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ cup packed chopped fresh cilantro
  • Zest of 1 lime (about 1 teaspoon)
  • Two tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste


  1. Husk the corn and cut the kernels from the cob. (See our How-To’s here.) Heat the tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat and sauté the corn for 3 minutes, stirring constantly, until slightly tender. Remove from the heat and transfer to a large bowl. Cool completely to room temperature.
  2. While the corn is cooling, cut the grape tomatoes in half and cut the avocado into ½ inch pieces. (You can also slice the onions and drain the black beans at this point.)
  3. To make the dressing, in a small bowl, whisk together the ½ cup olive oil, chopped fresh cilantro, lime zest and lime juice. Add a pinch of salt and a few grinds of black pepper.
  4. To the large bowl with the corn, add the halved tomatoes, diced avocado, red onion, and beans. Pour in the dressing and toss gently. Add additional salt and pepper to taste as desired.

    This is my absolute favorite recipe. I use the summer crisp canned corn (I think it’s del monte) instead of ears.

    Deeelicious! I had to fiddle with it for the two of us. One ear of corn that I boiled for two minutes, 1 avacado, 1 lime zested and juiced, 4 heaping tbls. of black beans, homegrown red and yellow cherry tomatoes, and 1 homegrown yellow tomato , and 1/4c. olive oil. I think this recipe is forgiving. A taste and see recipe. Thank you for sharing. Chilling right now.

        There’s a little bit left[eating some right now for breakfast], and I’m going to cook up a few shrimp. I think that would be very tasty.

    Looks perfect to satisfy my never ending avocado craving. Thanks for posting the recipe. I’m going to add some jalepenos though because I love a little heat. Also, if you cut the avocados up and toss the slices with some lime juice before adding it to the salad, it may help with the browning.

      Thanks Mandy!

  • Tammy wrote:

    how many days is the salad good for, will the guacamole turn brown?

    • Martha wrote:

      Hi Tammy – We were able to eat the leftovers the next day with only a little browning (the lime juice helps prevent some) – but much longer than that, you won’t have the same fresh flavors and colors so best to try to make only as much as you think you can eat within a day or so! Hope that helps!
