Avocado Corn Salad

Can you believe it’s football season already? I can’t. Football and baseball seem like the longest seasons in the world to me. To say I’m not a football fan would be an understatement – I’ll do just about everything I can to get out of watching a game, live or on tv. On the other hand, my hubby is a HUGE football fan, particularly college football. So I’m kinda stuck with having the sport on tv a good bit of the time as well as playing the occasional hostess when my hubby’s college team is playing.

Football entertaining in my house is all about super easy dinners or heavy munchies. Chili and buffalo chicken dip are two of our favorites, but really, if I put out some homemade chips and guac, my hubby is happy. This avocado corn salad is equally as easy but a nice change from those old standbys. We like to serve it as a chunky dip with tortilla chips (perfect for game day!), although it can also stand on its own as a side for burgers or tacos. I first tried this salad when my sister-in-law made it, and my hubby and I were instantly big fans. The fresh, ripe veggies shine. Below is our favorite way to make the salad, but adjust the quantities ingredients according to your tastes.

Serves 6-8


  • 4 ripe avocados, large dice
  • 2 plum tomatoes, small dice
  • 1/4 red onion, small dice
  • 1 c. corn kernels (from 1 ear of grilled corn, or use canned corn, drained)
  • 3 Tbs. coarsely chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 jalapeno, seeded and minced
  • juice of half a lime
  • 1 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 Tbs. honey
  • kosher salt
  • pepper

In a medium bowl, gently toss avocado, tomato, red onion, corn and cilantro to mix.  Add lime juice, olive oil, and honey and toss again. Vegetable should be just barely coated. Season with salt and pepper.

Add more cilantro, lime, honey or salt/pepper to taste.

Serve with tortilla chips for a quick dip or as a standalone side.
