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

  • 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.
  • While the corn is cooking, dice the tomatoes (I cut them into eighths), onions and avocado, and add them to a large bowl.
  • Allow the corn to cool slightly then cut it off the cob and add it to the bowl.
  • 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.
  • Serve immediately with your favorite chips (or on top of tacos, inside burritos, etc...the possibilities are endless!)
