Recipe Notes

Expert Tips and Tricks

  • Use freshly boiled corn on the cob.  Fresh corn will have a much better taste and texture than frozen or canned corn.
  • Select a firm but ripe avocado.  The avocado will get mushy if it is too ripe when mixed into the salad.
  • Toss until just mixed.  Try not to over mix the salad so the individual ingredients stay intact.
  • Prep ingredients individually.  If prepping ahead, store the ingredients individually and then toss together just before serving for the most crisp texture.

Meal Prep and Storage

  • To Prep Ahead:  For the best results,  prep all of the ingredients except for avocado. Store them separately for up to 24 hours in the refrigerator.  Just before serving, cut the avocado and toss everything together.
  • To Store:  Even with the avocado, leftovers will last for up to 1-2 days when stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
  • To Freeze: Due to texture changes, freezing is not recommended.
