Summer Harvest Salad


This Summer Harvest Salad is loaded with the abundant produce of summer. From juicy grape tomatoes, bursting with flavor, to fresh, creamy California Avocados and of course, grilled sweet corn, this is summer in a bowl. What better way to say goodbye to one of my favorite times of the year and to welcome a new season of abundance? Enjoy!


Serves: 4

2 ripe Fresh California Avocados, seeded, peeled and chopped
1 pt. grape or cherry tomatoes, halved
3 ears of grilled sweet corn, kernels removed and cob thrown away
2 Tbsp. fresh basil, chopped
2 Tbsp. unsalted butter (not margarine), melted
1 lime, juiced
1 pinch kosher salt
As needed Cracked Black Pepper to Taste

As with all fruits and vegetables, wash avocados before cutting.
