Sweet Summer Corn and Cucumber Salad

I love this salad as a side dish for any grilled meats... a nice change from our typical leafy green salad over here, so simple, and so yummy!  Without the lettuce, it doesn't need a fancy dressing to shine...just some lime juice and a few seasonings and it's perfect.

  • 1 cup cherry tomato (150g) halved
  • 2 cups cucumber, sliced thin or diced (300g) I like the larger English cucumbers chopped, or the mini cucumbers sliced on a mandolin.
  • 1 1/2 cups corn sliced off the cob (300g) grilled, boiled, microwaved, RAW... or frozen works too! I love to just microwave two ears in the husks, or wrapped in paper towels for 5 minutes.
  • 1 avocado, diced (115g) about 1 whole chopped
  • 1/4 cup diced red onion (50g) optional-- I like it with or without
  • 2-4 Tbsp. fresh chopped basil LOVE this addition, but cilantro would also be good.
  • Juice from 1 lime
  • sprinkle of garlic salt
  • sprinkle of cumin
  • Plenty of kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste


  • Just toss everything together and serve alongside everything and ANYTHING off of your grill!


  • I love to have a big bowl of simple arugula or mixed greens tossed in lemon juice that you can serve alongside or underneath this salad if you want greens, or just to really stretch it out!.  But it's especially yummy all by itself!
  • If you're not watching your fat, a good drizzle of olive oil would always be yummy.
