Servings 4 people

Ingredients

  • 1 ear of corn, husks removed
  • 1 long English cucumber, chopped
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes (vine-ripened if possible!)
  • 1/2 an avocado, cubed
  • 2 cups fresh strawberries, quartered
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil, chopped
  • 1/3 cup crumbled feta
  • 1/2 a lemon, juice only
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • Salt + pepper to taste

Instructions

  • To steam the corn, bring a large pot of water to a boil. Once boiling, you can either add the ear of corn straight into the water or place it in a steamer basket. Cover with a lid and let steam for 5 minutes.
  • While the corn steams, chop up all other ingredients! This includes the strawberries, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, and avocado. Crumble the feta, chop the fresh basil, and set aside.
  • Once the corn is done, remove from water and allow to cool for a few minutes (until it's comfortable to touch). Using a large knife, place the corn upright and slice the kernels off into a bowl.
  • In a large salad bowl, add the kernels of corn, sliced strawberries, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, and avocado chunks. Sprinkle with crumbled feta, chopped basil, olive oil, freshly-squeezed lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Toss everything to combine.
  • You can enjoy this salad immediately, or place it in the fridge for 30 mins to allow it to cool!

Notes

*While best enjoyed immediately, this salad will keep for about 1 day. Store it in an airtight container in the fridge!
*If making in advance, add the avocado, lemon juice, and olive oil immediately before serving (to prevent any sogginess).
