Zesty Tomato Salad

I have the yummiest Summer side dish for you!  

It's fresh, easy and light.  I love a healthy side dish option.  I started with this recipe from Skinny Taste - Corn Tomato Avocado Salad - and then edited it to work for me.  You can easily customize the ingredients to fit your family.

It's so pretty!



mix of colorful little tomatoes (I love the red, dark red and yellow mix)

3 skinny little cucumbers

3 ears of corn

2 green onions chopped

chopped purple onion (leave this in big chunks if you want some to be able to pick it out)

1 avocado

drizzle of Olive oil

Zest and juice of 1 lemon

salt and pepper to taste


Cook your corn in the microwave and slice it off the cob once it cools down.

Wash/chop everything else.

Combine all the veggies (save the avocado until the very end) and then drizzle olive oil, lemon zest and juice and add salt and pepper to taste.  Stir and serve.  

**If you are not going to serve and eat this immediately, wait to add in the avocado until right before you serve it to keep everything really fresh.  It's delicious with or without the avocado.

I took this to a BBQ and it was a big hit.  It's so good for Summer.  This recipe will be on repeat for me until grilling season is over :)


  1. This looks SO GOOD! I’ll definitely be trying it!

  2. This looks so good but did you know I hate tomatoes. I love tomato based stuff but I can't eat an actual tomato. It's a textured thing.


I LOVE hearing from you!! Thanks for taking the time to leave sweet comments; I enjoy reading every one of them.
