Grilled Corn, Avocado and Tomato Salad

May 8, 2014

Author Notes: I was looking for a light, and bright tasting salad to go with pulled pork sandwiches and beans. Finally I combined the best of a few recipes with corn, tomatoes and avocado. I added lime and rice vinegar to a simple vinegrette and I decided to roast the corn to bring out its sweetness.

Simple, different and delicious!
