Grilled Corn, Avocado and Tomato Salad

19 Jul

Every other weekend, I go visit my parents on Bainbridge Island. We moved there when I was 15. An age I don’t recommend moving any child. Granted, it’s hard to uproot yourself at any age but when your fifteen, girls are mean.  Yes, I said it. Girls are downright bitches when they hit 9th grade.  They get super territorial over everything.  Boys, clothes, and friends to name a few.  This made it super hard for me to make friends. Now this isn’t a poor me story, nor do I want it to turn into one.  I survived just like everybody else does.  Eventually I got a boyfriend, and he became my best friend.  However, once I graduated, I made a promise to myself to never return to Bainbridge. I was over the small town feel. I wanted the big city.

So I moved to Seattle. After only a couple of months, I missed slow lull of nature.  Now in the summer months, I try to go over their every other weekend.  My parents live on five acres with a hammock and a BBQ.  Two things I can’t put in my city apartment. The other day when I was over there, I made a grilled corn, avocado and tomato salad.  Super simple but incredibly tasty nonetheless.  All you need is a squeeze of lime and some olive oil to dress it up. Enjoy!

Serves 3 very hungry people 


  • One avocado, cut up
  • One pint of tomato’s, sliced
  • Two tablespoons of olive oil
  • Juice from one lime


Wrap the corn in tin foil and grill for 5 to 6 minutes on each side. Once done, let it cool and cut the corn off the cob into a large bowl. Add the tomato’s and the avocado. Squeeze some lime and olive oil over the top. Serve.
