This Grilled Corn and Avocado Salsa Recipe is loaded with fresh summer produce: corn, avocado, tomatoes, and more! Only 9 ingredients necessary!
Call it a stereotype if you will, but Trevor and I are originally from Iowa and we LOVE corn.
Trevor especially loooooooves corn.
So, naturally, Trevor went crazy for this Grilled Corn and Avocado Salsa Recipe.
I know Trevor reeeeeally likes a recipe, when I look over, and he’s literally shoveling said recipe into his mouth with a spoon. I’m pretty sure he didn’t even bother eating this with chips (which I highly recommend btw).
I think I got approximately TWO bites of this salsa, before it was completely gone.
Lucky for me, it’s ultra easy to make.
I love this Grilled Corn and Avocado Salsa, BECAUSE it’s so easy AND you can use it in so many different ways:
- Eat it with a spoon <— Trevor’s preference 😉
- Eat it with chips <— MY preference
- Eat it on (vegan) Sweet Potato Tacos <— coming soon!!!!
It’s definitely hearty enough on it’s own, but obvi it’s great with chips, and it’s absolutely KILLER on those sweet potato tacos. I seriously can’t wait for you guys to make that combo.
All you need to do is grill up some corn and avocado (watch the video above to see how) – which PS – if it’s rainy and gross outside I highly recommend a cast iron grill pan for your grilling – then dice up tomatoes, red onion, jalapeno, cilantro, and toss everything together with lime juice, salt, and pepper.
SO simple, but I really wanted the flavors of all that gorgeous summer produce to really shine.
It’s a little tangy, a little sweet, a little spicy, a little creamy, and a whole lotta yummy. 😉
