This late summer Sweet Corn Avocado Salad is a flavor explosion. With zesty tajin, creamy avocado, and a touch of jalapeño, it's the perfect blend of fresh and spicy. Plus, it's ready in just 20 minutes!

Can late summer be considered its own season? Because there is so much joy to experience this time of year as summer is slowly winding down. The late summer sun continues to grace us with its warmth, the nights are just cool enough to throw on a sweatshirt, and the farmer’s markets are still brimming with an abundance of fresh produce. It’s a magical time when the flavors of summer are at their peak, and nature’s bounty seems endless.

My Sweet Corn Avocado Salad is a tribute to this time of year, and it’s ready to become your new favorite dish! In just 20 minutes, you’ll create a simple yet deliciously nutritious salad that bursts with the freshness of sweet corn and creamy avocado, complemented by the zesty kick of lime, jalapeño and tajin seasoning.

What you will need for this perfect Sweet Corn Avocado Salad:

  • sweet corn
  • semi-ripe avocado
  • jalapeño
  • green onions
  • cilantro
  • lime
  • tajin


With these vibrant ingredients combined, it’s not difficult to fall in love with this salad and make it many times over and over again (it also holds up nicely in the fridge for the next day)!

Why This Salad Rocks:

Freshness Overload: Sweet corn straight off the cob is a game-changer. Its crisp, juicy kernels add a delightful pop to every bite.

Creamy Dreamy Avocado: The semi-ripe avocado brings a luscious creaminess that perfectly balances the crunch of the corn.

Spicy Kick: A hint of jalapeño provides a welcome spicy kick. Adjust the amount to suit your heat tolerance.

Zesty Tajin: Tajin seasoning, a blend of chili, lime, and salt, elevates the flavor profile with a tangy, savory, and slightly spicy kick.

Fresh Herbs: Fresh cilantro and green onions add a burst of color and freshness, enhancing the overall appeal of the salad.

Customizable: This salad is highly customizable. You can adjust the spice level, the serving amount, add extra lime for tanginess, or even throw in some diced red bell peppers for sweetness and color!

Now, this Sweet Corn Avocado Salad is not just a side dish; it can easily steal the spotlight as a refreshing main course or a delightful appetizer.

It’s perfect for a quick lunch, a light dinner, or a fresh addition to your next backyard barbecue.

Late summer is all about savoring the best of the season, and our Sweet Corn Avocado Salad does just that, plus, it’s a breeze to make!
