FYI, corn is a grain. Folks often tell me about how they're eating their veggies and then list corn among them. Corn is a whole grain, not a veggie. Nutritionally, it is the same as a slice of bread of some brown rice. Lots of good stuff in there, but a lot more calories than broccoli or carrots. Look for your plate to have a protein food, something whole grain and then fill your plate with veggies.
Grilled Corn Salad
- 4 ears fresh corn
- 1 cup cherry tomatoes, cut in half
- 1/2 avocado, diced
- 1/4 red onion, diced
- Juice from one lime
- salt and pepper to taste
- 2 teaspoon chili powder
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- Shuck your corn and brush with olive oil. Grill (I used a grill pan) for 8-10 minutes or until charred a bit on all sides.Bring inside and let cool.
- When cool enough to handle, use a sharp knife to cut kernels from the cobs. Toss corn with the remaining ingredients and serve.
