Grilled corn, pepper and avocado salad

Alan Roettinger | Delicious Living
  • Serves: 8 people

Grilled corn is a classic Mexican street food, served with a sprinkling of hot chile powder and a squeeze of lime juice. This salad expands on that treat with antioxidant-rich fresh vegetables and healthy fats from avocado and flaxseed oil.

Directions
  1. Preheat grill. Place corn on grill and cook, turning as needed to blacken tops of kernels evenly. Remove and wrap in foil until cooled. Cut kernels off cobs into a large bowl. Add peppers, onion, and cilantro; mix well.
  2. Whisk together oil, vinegar, garlic, chile powder, salt, and pepper until emulsified. Pour about 1/2 cup over vegetables and stir to combine. Add avocado and fold in gently. Serve at once.
