Spring is the perfect time to fire up the grill and indulge in delicious BBQ dishes. While meats and kebabs often take centre stage, it’s essential to have a refreshing and vibrant salad to complement the smoky flavours.

This delightful combination of grilled corn, creamy avocado, juicy tomatoes, and tangy lime dressing will bring a burst of colour and freshness to your plate.

Perfect as a side at your next barbecue!


  • 4 ears of corn, husked
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/4 cup red onion, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Belle Donne salt and pepper to taste



  1. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat to prepare for the corn grilling process.
  2. Grill the corn on the preheated grill until lightly charred, turning occasionally. This should take about 8-10 minutes. Once done, remove the corn from the grill and let it cool.
  3. Once the corn has cooled, cut the kernels off the cob using a sharp knife. Transfer the grilled corn kernels to a large mixing bowl.
  4. To the bowl with the corn, add the diced avocado, halved cherry tomatoes, finely chopped red onion, and freshly chopped cilantro. These ingredients will enhance the flavours and textures of the salad, providing a refreshing balance.
  5. In a separate small bowl, whisk together the lime juice, olive oil, Belle Donne salt, and pepper to create a tangy and zesty dressing.
  6. Drizzle the lime dressing over the salad in the mixing bowl and gently toss to combine. Ensure that the dressing coats all the ingredients evenly, enhancing the flavours throughout.
  7. Taste the salad and adjust the seasoning as needed. You can add a sprinkle of Belle Donne salt and pepper if desired, allowing you to tailor the flavours to your preference.
  8. You can serve the Grilled Corn and Avocado Salad immediately to enjoy the vibrant flavours and contrasting textures. Alternatively, refrigerate the salad for a couple of hours to let the flavours meld together, intensifying the taste and allowing the ingredients to marinate.

With its smoky grilled corn, creamy avocado, juicy tomatoes, and tangy lime dressing, this Grilled Corn and Avocado Salad offers a refreshing and healthy alternative to traditional BBQ sides, bringing a burst of colour and freshness to your plate.

Whether you're hosting a backyard BBQ or simply craving a light and satisfying salad, this recipe is a must-try.
