Soul Food Love Savory Avocado Salad with Corn, Peppers, and Cilantro

  •     4 cups corn kernels*
  •     3 large red bell peppers, diced
  •     4 large avocados, diced
  •     1 bunch fresh cilantro, chopped (about 1 cup)
  •     Juice of 2 limes
  •     2 tablespoons olive oil
  •     Pepper (to your taste)


    1.      Toss the corn, bell peppers, and avocados in a salad bowl with ⅔ cup of the cilantro.

    2.      To make the salad dressing, puree the remaining cilantro with the limejuice in a blender or food processor, slowly adding the olive oil. Dress the salad and add pepper to taste. An hour in the refrigerator improves this dish.


* If corn is in season, use fresh raw kernels cut from the cob; you’ll need about 4 large ears. The rest of the year, simply steam frozen kernels until tender and then let cool.
