Dinner #3

Last week for the meal that me and Cody decided to make together was fresh corn and avocado salad!!! This was fantastic!! The salad dressing was light and delicious! I especially loved the fresh sweet corn. oh, and we decided to add cubed grilled chicken- it was so good. If anyone would like the recipe I will include. Fresh Corn and Avocado Salad

6 ears corn
2 cups halved cherry tomatoes
1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion (we omitted this because we don't love raw onion)
1 large avocado cut into 1/2 in. cubes (I added 2 avocados.. extra delicious)
1/3 cup chopped fresh basil leaves
2 tbsp. champagne vinegar
1 tsp. Dijon mustard
1/4 cup extra - virgin olive oil
1/4 tsp. each kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

1. In a large pot of boiling water, cook corn until warmed through, 3 to 5 minutes. Rinse with cold water until cool.
2 Meanwhile, combine tomatoes, onion, avocado, and basil in a large bowl. In a small bowl, combine remaining ingredients to make the vinaigrette, whisking until blended.
3. Cut kernels off cobs and add to salad: pour in vinaigrette and toss gently.


  1. that sounds really good rae. REALLY good. (i'm on HCG right now,.. so really really really good! hehehe. I will make that when I'm done.

  2. That sounds soo delish! Looks like I know what will be on my menu for next week!
