Fresh Corn: the base of this salad is plenty of fresh sweet corn. There’s no need to cook the corn for this recipe, fresh is just fine. Don’t have fresh? you can use frozen corn that had been thawed if needed. Just be sure to drain it before using.
Avocado: the next most delicious ingredient! adds a delicious creamy bite as well as extra healthy fats.
Cilantro: fresh cilantro gives this salad a delicious bright flavor.
Red Onion: a little red onion gives this salad the perfect flavor! you can rinse the red onion with a bit of cold water before adding it to the salad to get rid of that classic red onion “bite”.
Jalapeño: this adds just a little kick to the salad! feel free to leave it out if you prefer.
Olive Oil: to bring everything in the salad together we’re making a delicious lime-y vinaigrette. The base of the dressing is olive oil!
Garlic: if you can use fresh garlic I highly recommend it!
Lime Juice and Zest: to give the salad the most delicious and bright flavor we’re using plenty of fresh lime juice AND zest.
Cumin: a little goes a long way to really round out the flavor of this salad.
- Make a double batch – if you’re making this salad with hopes to serve a larger crowd you can make a double batch.
- Add a little cotija – don’t need to keep this recipe dairy free? feel free to finish the salad with a sprinkle of salty and delicious cotija or feta cheese.
- Leave out the jalapeño – sensitive to spice? leave out the diced jalapeño completely. The salad will still be delicious.
- Use grilled corn – if you like the flavor of grilled corn you can throw some fresh corn on the grill and then remove the kernels to use for this salad.
- Swap the olive oil – don’t have olive oil to make the dressing? swap it for avocado oil!
How to Make Avocado Corn Salad

How Long Does Corn Tomato Avocado Salad Last?
This salad will last up to 2-3 days in the fridge. The lime juice in the dressing should keep the avocado from turning brown in the salad.
If you need to keep this salad fresh for or a bit longer than 2-3 days, I would recommend leaving out the avocado altogether and just adding it right before serving and eating the salad instead.
