Summer sweet corn and juicy tomatoes join forces with fresh mozzarella and creamy avocado to make this Tomato, Mozzarella and Grilled Corn Salad one of my all-time favorite summer side dishes!
Now that the warm weather has officially arrived, my thoughts immediately turn to easy meals, mainly comprised of grilled foods and salads. But not every salad has to be a traditional greens and dressing option. This Tomato, Mozzarella and Grilled Corn Salad is hands-down one of my favorite side salads to gobble down in the summer.
One of my favorite things about this Tomato, Mozzarella and Grilled Corn Salad is that you can find almost all of the ingredients for it during your run to the farmers market. We’re talking tomatoes, corn and cilantro. (Heck, some markets will even have the avocado and fresh mozzarella cheese – a one-stop shop!) I prefer the flavor that grilled corn gives this dish, but feel free to skip that extra step and use fresh corn cut straight off the cob; it will still be delicious.
Don’t be put off by the amount of cilantro in the dressing. After a quick spin in the blender with lime juice and olive oil, it mellows nicely and is a flavorful complement to the cool avocados, creamy mozzarella, juicy tomatoes and slight char of the sweet corn. Plus the vibrant green color is a show stopper on the buffet table.
