Summer is in full swing, and my garden is providing a bountiful crop of tomatoes and
cucumbers. If you don’t have a veggie garden, this is a great time of year to explore your local
farmer’s market. This is a simple, nutrient-rich salad to showcase some of that beautiful
summer produce.
2 ears sweet corn, grilled, roasted or steamed
1.5 cups small tomatoes (grape, cherry, pear), cut in half
1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion (or sweet)
1 cup cucumber, bite-sized pieces
1 avocado, bite-sized pieces
1 Tbls. chopped fresh cilantro
Juice from ½-1 lime
¼ tsp cumin
Salt & pepper to taste.
Options: replace black pepper with cayenne pepper for a spicy kick. Add 1 cup black beans or
garbanzo beans for added protein.
Stand corn on end to cut kernels from the cob. Don’t have access to a grill? Simply thaw frozen
corn and toss it in! Toss ingredients together in a bowl. Makes about 4 servings.
Enjoy the abundant produce that summer has to offer!
