This little quickie of a recipe was one that you guys just wanted. Actually, it became one of my most highly requested recipes after I posted it on Instagram. So here ya have it! It’s summer and I know the last thing any of us want to do is stay in the house longer than we need to. This herby avocado dressed corn and salmon salad makes summer life even easier. For the dressing, all you’re doing is blending the ingredients together, folding it into the grilled corn salad and then dolloping it once more on top of crispy broiled salmon (another speedy recipe). It’s a recipe that I’ve made three times in the past four days…I wouldn’t have it up here if it weren't that good :)

Enjoy my friends!

ps: The corn salad alone would make for a great side to bring to any summer party, picnic, BBQ or gathering!

Serves: Many 

Prep Time: 5 minutes | Cook Time: 5 minutes

Ingredients for the Herby Avocado Dressing and Grilled Corn:

1/4 cup fresh basil

1/4 cup cilantro

1/2 avocado (save the other half for the salad)

Juice from 1/2 lemon or lime

1 teaspoon honey

2 garlic cloves

1/4 - 1/3  cup olive oil

1/4 - 1/3  cup water

Pinch of salt 

*2 & 1/2 cups grilled corn (or boiled)


Simply blend all the ingredients (except for the corn) into the food processor, until creamy and slightly thin in texture. We want it to be on the thinner side since it will be used as a dressing. Then scoop a few tablespoons of the dressing into a mixing bowl with the grilled corn and the remaining avocado that's been cubed. Mix well and enjoy!

For the Broiled Salmon

Serves: 1 

Prep Time: 5 minutes | Cook Time: 8-10 minutes

Ingredients for the Salmon:

1 medium-size piece of salmon, preferably wild caught

1 tablespoon olive oil

sea salt


Start by preheating your oven to broiler on high. In the meantime place the salmon, skin side down, on a parchment lined baking sheet. Sprinkle with olive oil and sea salt. Cook for 8-10 minutes until crispy on the outside and until the salmon is cooked through the inside but still moist. Dollop some of the herby avocado dressing on top of the salmon and enjoy!

To make the salad shown above, simply roast tomatoes from this recipe and add everything to a plate with cooked quinoa and your favorite greens.
