This salad was made by accident - adding what was around the house into a big bowl. End result was delicious! —ChezUs

What You'll Need
  • 4 ears white corn
  • drizzle olive oil
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes
  • 1/4 of a red onion, diced
  • cilantro, handful, minced
  • 1 avocado, medium dice
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • drizzle of high quality olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons cumin seeds, lightly toasted
  • kosher salt, to taste
  1. Heat your BBQ grill. Lightly coat the corn with some olive oil, grill, just until there are slight grill marks. Let cool.
  2. While the corn is grilling, let the onion sit in an icy bowl of water, to remove the bitterness, for at least 30 minutes; drain.
  3. Toss cherry tomatoes into a serving bowl. I used really tiny ones, if you cannot find really tiny ones, cut them in half.
  4. Add the onion and the cilantro.
  5. Carefully, slice the corn kernels off of the ears of corn, add to the bowl.
  6. In a small jar or bowl, mix olive oil, lemon juice and cumin. Drizzle over the corn mixture. Add the avocado.
  7. Season with salt. Toss.
  8. Serve. Eat.

Yes, you can find cumin seeds at Whole Foods. I have never brought spices online so I am not sure where to check there. It really is fantastic. May make again this weekend.
