Grilled Avocado & Corn Salad – recipe
Recipe Type: Appetizer
  • 2 avocados, halved and removed from their skin
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen corn
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 2 scallions, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon diced jalapeno (more or less)
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1/4 cup crumbled cotija or feta
  1. Add the butter to a hot skillet. To that add the corn, cumin and a pinch of salt. Sauté until corn is just cooked; 2-3 minutes then turn off heat. Toss in the scallions, jalapeno and cilantro. Taste and add more salt if needed.
  2. On a very hot grill or grill pan place the avocados on the grill. Let sit undisturbed for a couple of minutes. Flip the avocados over and grill the other side. Salt the avocados and place on a platter with the corn salad.
  3. Grill some thinly sliced bread that has been drizzled with oil. Brush the grilled bread with a garlic clove. Serve alongside the salad.
