Corn Tomato Avocado Salad is the ultimate BBQ side dish! I am taking advantage of summer corn, tomatoes and cucumber and tossed them altogether with avocado for a fresh summer salad! Great for cookouts and summer outings. A few more summer salads you may enjoy, this Grilled Corn Salad with Feta or this Corn Salsa with Lime!

corn, tomatoes, cucumbers and avocado.

This summer salad is one of my most popular side dishes and I am not surprised! It’s colorful, fresh and healthy made with simple, in-season ingredients. The avocado adds a lovely creaminess to the salad once you toss it all together. If you want to make this ahead, prep all the ingredients and add the avocado just before serving.

You can also turn this into a main dish salad by grilling up some proteins and serving it with the salad. Grilled shrimp or chicken would be great mixed in. Keep it vegan by grilling some tofu. Or grill up some steaks and serve it on the side.

Salad Variations:

  • Make it smokey: Grill the corn for a smoky flavor.
  • Add some herbs: Add fresh herbs such as basil or chives.
  • Make it a Main: Grill some chicken breast, shrimp or tofu and toss it together for a main dish.
  • Great for tacos: Want to make this with tacos, sub the lemon for lime juice and add cilantro!
  • Low-Carb Option: To make this keto and low-carb, omit the corn and double the other ingredients.

  1. Yum! Yum! Yum! I’m always a fan of your recipes and this one hits the spot for something refreshing and light.

  2. Delicious!  I will definitely make again and will double the recipe. Next time I will use thawed, frozen corn and will add orange bell pepper for more color. I might try adding bacon. 

  3. I love this simple summer salad!! It’s also great with a little feta cheese added to it. 😋

  4. Instead of lemon I use lime and add a thinly sliced jalapeño or Fresno chili. Delicious!

  5. This salad is fabulous. Whenever I take it to a party, everyone raves about it. So easy to make.

  6. Wonderful and delicious. Perfect anytime of the year but awesome during those hot days of summer. And it’s only 3 points for me in WW

  7. it’s a delicious side salad perfect for any occasion

  8. Delicious, and simple. Everyone loves it and wants me to make MORE!

  9. Just made this. Amazing. Then I noticed a bottle of Tajin in the cabinet and couldn’t resist. That worked really well too!

  10. I’ve made this salad twice.  The first time, my avocados were super soft and everything kind of got a green avocado coating after I tossed it together. So when I made it for the potluck today, I well tossed everything except for the avocados first. And then added the avocados and just gently folded them in.  It worked out very well!  The avocados didn’t get overworked.

  11. I took this to a Mexican themed potluck today, using a lime cilantro vinaigrette.  A little jicama added, as well.  It was tasty and well-received…very pretty & colorful!  Thank you for all the time it takes to create your blog posts and for sharing your recipes for others to enjoy! ❤️

  12. What is a Persian cucumber?

    • They’re typically smaller than regular cucumbers and the skin is thin and easy to chew. Mild flavor.  I used an English cucumber and it made the salad crunchier but worked well in this salad.  It was more affordable.

  13. Yum! This was soooo good, and so quick and easy! 

  14. Was skeptical. However, had everything on hand
    Followed to a tee. Turned out delicious with no leftovers!!

  15. OMG! This was so delicious. So fresh, simple and super tasty. My husband asked when we could have it again! Think I ‘ll and grilled shrimp next time for a complete meal. Thanks Gina!!

  16. Very good…a meal by itself!

  17. Fresh and cool in the summer heat. Good way to use the mountains of tomatoes this time of year. Lime juice and cilantro is an easy switch with tacos

  18. I had one ear of corn and fresh tomatoes and a cucumber from my garden. I mixed these with chopped onion and avocado. I used mango balsamic vinegar and citrus cilantro evoo that I bought in Vegas. Best breakfast ever!

  19. Light and delicious! Family loved it!

  20. This is quick to make and so delicious. I make it often.
