This Grilled Corn Salad with Avocado Lime Dressing is the perfect recipe for any backyard barbecue or warm weather get together.
Grilled corn is a summer staple! We love it in our house. It’s fun to find new ways to incorporate it into our everyday meals. I definitely love it right off the cob, but grilled corn can add a ton of summer flavor to any dish.
This salad was inspired by a fun Mexican side dish we had on vacation. It was spicy, limey, and creamy (and probably much more decadent that I’d like to admit). We couldn’t get enough of it. I’m actually inspired by decadent dishes I’ve had in restaurants. It’s fun recreating them into healthy favorites that I can eat all the time without the added fat and calories, but with all the delicious flavor!
My inspiration dish definitely had a Mexican flare, but I switched mine up a bit with a few of my favorite spices, cumin and turmeric. For a healthier creamy dressing, I used plain yogurt, miso paste and lime. The fresh lime is so refreshing, it makes this dish the perfect side to any barbecue fare!
