Grilled Corn Avocado Salad

Corn seems to be bursting at the seams in the market recently. All sorts and types everywhere. We went to a night market recently and the seller said that these local corn are called “Crystal Corn” because the kernels are light, shiny and clear.

As much as I love corn, the most annoying part about eating corn on the cob is having to pick my teeth afterwards. Ugh……..

So for the lazybugs like me, I prefer to make a simple salad out of Corn, Avocado, Scallions, Coriander, Lime Juice, Salt & Pepper. I would have added in some tomatoes if I had some… but nevermind. Simple is good!

Charred bits are the best! The leftover cobs are good for soup/broth-making. Just remember when cutting off the kernels, don’t go too far in to prevent cutting into the inedible hard fibers.
