Avocado and Grilled Corn Salad
Salads are the dieter’s friend. Why, because when you are trying to lose weight, most salads contain fresh vegetables and little harmful fat that is bad for your diet. So with that said, here’s a great example of a delicious salad that could be good for someone on a diet, but also good for anyone else. Remember, a diet shouldn’t be just a fad or a way to eat temporarily, it should be a complete lifestyle.
As I write this, it is summer and that’s the best time for great avocados. Here are the ingredients for the salad and the cilantro vinaigrette dressing that goes along with it and the prep instructions:
5 Ears Corn, husk removed, brush with olive oil and grilled, remove corn with sharp knife
2 Avocado’s, diced and sprinkled with lemon juice to prevent browning
2 C. Tomatoes, red and yellow cherry variety or equivalent
1 Small red onion, finely diced
¾ C. Feta, crumbled
1 ½ C. English cucumber, skin on and chopped small dice
Add to a large bowl and refrigerate until ready to use.
6 T. Olive oil
2 T. Sherry vinegar
1 t. Garlic powder
2 T. Fresh cilantro, minced
½ t. Salt
10 Grinds of fresh ground pepper
Add all of the above ingredients in a small glass jar with a lid. Shake really well. Taste and adjust seasoning and ratios of oil and vinegar as you desire.
When ready to serve salad, add dressing and gently toss.
