Corn Salsa Recipe

If you follow me on Snapchat, then you’ve probably seen that I’ve been making a bunch of healthy food lately! I’m on a health kick right now mostly because of stomach issues, but also because I just want to feel better and look better. Every summer, my mom always makes this delicious corn salsa/salad that’s so delicious, but she seems to change it up a little bit every time. Because I love it so much, I decided to make my favorite version and share the recipe with you guys! It’s so yummy and filling, but still light & refreshing for summer.

WHAT YOU’LL NEED:

  • 3 or 4 ears of white corn on the cob (I used 3, but you could use 4 if you want the corn to be more prominent)
  • 1 tomato
  • 1/4 red onion
  • 1 jumbo avocado
  • 2 handfuls of cilantro
  • 1 cucumber
  • 1 lime
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • salt
  • garlic pepper

HOW TO MAKE IT:

  1. Husk the corn, then lather some olive oil on it and grill them till they’re just a little crispy (like in the photo below).
  2. While the corn is on the grill, start dicing the other veggies (tomatoes, red onion, avocado, cucumbers) and toss them in a big salad bowl.
  3. Cut up the cilantro into little pieces. I used about 1/3 of a bundle, but you can use however much you want!
  4. Once the corn is nice and golden, cut it off the cob using a large, sharp knife. Make sure you cut it as close to the cob as you can! Once it’s all cut, toss into the bowl.
  5. Cut your lime in half and squeeze out as much juice as possible using a spoon, twisting it around over the bowl.
  6. Drizzle the olive oil over the contents in the bowl.
  7. Add some salt & garlic pepper for taste.
  8. Toss lightly & serve chilled.
  9. Enjoy!

You can also mix in some lettuce and chicken to make it more of a salad!
