This was simply so delicious, I had to pass it along. I have made this recipe three times since reading it, and love it all the same each time!
This Summer Corn And Avocado Salad recipe was posted a few weeks back by Emily Malone at Daily Garnish. You can see the recipe here, and I encourage you to try it. This was so tasty I ate it in a myriad of ways for three days. Finally I just scooped the rest into a bowl and ate it with a fork. I skipped the avocado each time, as avocado doesn’t keep so well and I wanted to make sure I still was enticed to eat the leftovers.
I had no idea you could eat corn raw. Really. I didn’t grow up in Iowa, I grew up outside Washington D.C. There wasn’t many corn fields in the area, or corn experts to relay such information.
Last night was women’s circle, and since I had been a slacker the last few months buying hummus and carrots and the like to bring to share, I really wanted to make some wholesome loveliness for the ladies. I headed out to the backyard first to grab some corn off our stalks. Except there wasn’t any there. Not one corn cob. My husband and I are a little stunned as to what happened, whether squirrels, neighbors, or a corn thief drive by as you can see we are growing corn from the street. Whatever it was, I was BUMMED. I made the kids get in the car and race to the local organic farm stand down the street in their pajamas! Oh my goodness, the corn from this farm is the best I have ever had, and for this recipe, it tasted like sugar. A sweet, sweet, end of season treat that you don’t have to feel guilty about!
I used Emily’s suggested method of getting the corn off of the cob in an efficient manner, it seemed to work great, but I don’t have any experience any other way!
My son took this photo. Lovely.
Yes, these little gems came from the backyard, nothing stole them! Super Sweet 100′s and Sun Sugar. Sun Sugar cherries are by far my favorite!
And here she is, corn salad ready to be scooped onto chips! Or shoveled in with a fork…either way it is simple to make and scrumptious!
