Recently “bountiful basket” site opened up in our place and I have been purchasing vegetables and fruits from the site. We do not know what is in the basket until pickup day and that makes it even more interesting. One such week we ended up with avocados and cherry tomatoes along with a bunch of other fruits and vegetables. Decided to make a salad and tossed it along with some corn.
I normally steam the corn since that is easy, but this time chose to grill it. I believe that added a ton of extra flavor to the salad. Overall we loved the salad and this is perfect for the summer when you get fresh corn that is zillions of times tastier than the store bought corn. Recipe adapted from here.
