Grilled Corn, Avocado and Tomato Salad with Honey Lime Dressing

Nothing makes me more happy than finding recipes with all my favorite things in it.  Avocados, Cherry Tomatoes, and Sweet Corn....YUM!!!!  Summer means sweet corn for me and there are still a couple farms around here that are selling those delicious bi-colored ears.  I served this salad with BLT sandwiches and ears of sweet corn rubbed with butter and sprinkled with salt.  A perfect summer-time meal!

Grilled Corn, Avocado and Tomato Salad with Honey Lime Dressing
Source: For The Love Of Cooking
1 pint grape tomatoes
1 ripe avocado
2 ears of fresh sweet corn
2 T. fresh cilantro, chopped
Remove husks from corn and grill over medium heat for 10 minutes. The corn should have some brown spots and be tender and not mushy. Cut the corn off the cob then scrape the cob with the back of your knife to get the juices. Set aside and let cool. Slice the tomatoes in half. Dice the avocado and chop the cilantro.

Honey Lime Dressing:
Juice of 1 lime
3 T. vegetable oil
1 T. honey
Sea salt and fresh cracked pepper, to taste
1 clove garlic, minced
Dash of cayenne pepper

Add all the dressing ingredients in a small bowl and whisk to combine. Set aside.

Combine the sliced tomatoes, avocado, cilantro and grilled corn and honey lime dressing and mix gently so everything is evenly coated. Be careful not to mash the avocados. Let the salad sit for 10-15 minutes to let flavors mingle. Enjoy.
