This simple grilled corn + avocado salsa is one of the BEST dips I've ever had!

It's hard to choose who the star of this show is…the char grilled corn or the buttery avocado, but either way, this is a dip that I know you can use all season long. We've been serving it up as an appetizer with organic corn chips, but it's also a great topping for tacos, nachos or even avocado toast.

In fact, just the other night, I made sweet potato toast for the first time, using that as my base, then a layer of mashed black beans and this salsa on top and it was perfection. So quick, so tasty and even though it was fairly light, I was still surprisingly full and satisfied.

One of the great things about this salsa is that you can actually make it in tandem with the rest of your meal. If you're whipping up some burgers, making kabobs or anything else on the grill, just toss your ears of corn on when it's nice and hot, let them get a little charred and then just throw everything together in a bowl.

SO EASY!

I'm guessing there won't be any leftovers, but if there is, another great way to use this would be to scramble up a few eggs (or tofu) and serve this over top. Filling, healthy and a great way to fuel up for a busy day.

Your turn…

Ingredients

  • 2 ears of corn
  • 2 avocados
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes
  • 1 medium red onion
  • 1/4 - 1/2 cup cilantro depending on taste
  • Juice of 2 limes or 1 lemon, 1 lime
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • Salt + pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Preheat the grill to medium-high. Peel and remove the silk from the corn, then add it to the hot grill and grill for 2 - 3 minutes per side until it's charred and slightly soft.
  2. While the corn is cooking, dice the tomatoes (I cut them into eighths), onions and avocado, and add them to a large bowl.
  3. Allow the corn to cool slightly then cut it off the cob and add it to the bowl.
  4. Finely chop the cilantro, then add that to the bowl along with the citrus juice, chili powder, salt and pepper. Toss to combine. Taste and adjust the salt + pepper as needed.
  5. Serve immediately with your favorite chips (or on top of tacos, inside burritos, etc...the possibilities are endless!)

  1. I loved your avocado toast it was so yummy and I love reading all your recipes, I try most of them so glad I found your website. Thanks

  2. It will try this recipe soon, but I’ll skip the chips part because this salsa looks exactly like something that deserves to be eaten with a spoon!

  3. There are just some dips out there that are way better to eat with a spoon by itself, and I think this would be one of them! Look at the avocado and gorgeous tomatoes! I love this!
