Following our noses to the delicious smells of grilling, I love taking the family to one of our favorite family restaurants, LongHorn Steakhouse. The menu is just filled with everything grilled and delicious. Have you tried the new Spicy Grilled Jalapeno Sirloin yet? New for the summer, this hot and spicy dish features a jalapeno butter sauce and is topped with your very own grilled jalapeno. Feeling inspired by this feisty new steak, I knew pairing it with a Southwestern inspired zesty side dish would make this meal absolutely stellar!
So firing up the grill, I channeled my father’s grilling skills and our latest shared love…grilled corn. Corn grilled right on the BBQ is just amazing. How can I ever go back to boiling? In search for that perfect char, I discovered deliciousness. Here’s the Grilled Corn and Avocado Salad Recipe:
Grilled Corn and Avocado Salad Recipe
- 4 Ears of Fresh Corn shucked
- 1 Pint of Cherry Tomatoes sliced in half
- 2 Avocados peeled and sliced into edible chunks
- 1/3 Cup of Onion diced
- 1/8-1/4 Cup of Fresh Lime Juice I love lime, so I did the 1/4 cup
- Olive Oil
- Salt and Pepper to Taste
- Set your Grill to Medium High Heat.
- Brush olive oil on all sides of your corn. Place directly onto hot grill.
- Turn corn every few minutes, until fully cooked and kernels browned/charred (about 10-15 minutes).
- Remove corn from heat and allow to cool for about 5-7 minutes.
- Meanwhile, mix your tomatoes, onion and lime juice in a large bowl.
- Using knife, slice kernels from corn husks. Mix with your tomato, onion and lime juice mixture. Add your avocados and mix well (avoid overmixing and mushy avocados)
- Add salt and pepper to taste.
- Serve warm or cold.
Can we talk about the amazing grilled corn kernels in this dish? You just want to pick them out and eat them! This dish is such a beautiful addition to your next BBQ, and definitely a crowd pleaser! With so much flavor and so many diets satisfied, I know that you’ll have a winner. Zesty lime juice, charred corn, fresh veggies….YUM! Pairs perfectly with steak too (hey, gotta keep the meat lovers happy at the BBQ too, right?).
A spicy new steak, a zesty new side dish and summer. Yes, life is delicious!
