Grilled Corn Summer Salad

Grilled corn is probably one my favorite summer foods, let alone, foods out there.  It is crisp, sweet, and crunchy and even off the cob, is so so good! This summer salad is as fresh as it gets and is the perfect accompaniment to any summer meal.  With the gorgeous colors and flavors, this will be a winner on your dinner table.

With all of it's veggies, it is the perfect, healthy side dish to eat when trying to stay fit during those bikini months.  Believe me, if you make this, you will be going back for seconds, thirds, and maybe even fourths and you won't even have to feel bad at all about it.  :) Happy summer!

4 ears of corn, husked and grilled
1 english cucumber, diced
1 container of grape tomatoes, halved
1 container of yellow heirloom tomatoes, halved
2 avocados, chopped
1/2 small red onion, diced

4 limes, juiced
2 tsp cumin
2 tsp hot sauce
1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper

Turn grill on high.  Place husked corn on grill and grill to your liking.  Set aside and cool.

Cut and chop all of the vegetables and place in a large bowl.  (Squeeze lemon juice- if you have any- over chopped avocados to keep from browning before adding to bowl).  Carefully cut corn kernels off of the cob. Add to bowl.

Mix and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Right before serving, combine lime juice, cumin, and hot sauce.

Pour desired amount of dressing on top of serving.  I do this so each person can control how much dressing they want.  It honestly tastes delicious without any dressing too!
