Jessica Braider
I could eat this Fresh Corn, Tomato, and Avocado salad every day during the summer! It's packed with summertime flavors and super healthy, too! This makes a wonderful Labor Day recipe for picnics and potlucks - after all, who wouldn’t love to eat a corn, tomato, and avocado salad with shrimp or black beans??

Servings 8 servings


  • 1 lb. medium or large shrimp, peeled and deveined, or use black beans
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes halved
  • 2 avocados peeled and cubed
  • 2 corn ears kernels sliced off (no need to cook if it’s fresh sweet corn. If not, steam it for 3 minutes)
  • 6 oz. feta cheese or part-skim mozzarella cheese, cubed, or use Mexican queso fresco or cotija
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil slivered
  • 1 – 2 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar to taste
  • 1 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper freshly ground, or to taste


  • Pan-fry, steam or grill the shrimp until they are pink, 3 – 4 minutes total (or thaw them if using cooked shrimp).
  • Combine all the ingredients except the shrimp in a large serving bowl. Serve the shrimp on top of the salad.


Do Ahead or Delegate: Cook and refrigerate the shrimp, halve the tomatoes, steam the corn if necessary and remove the kernels, or fully prepare and refrigerate the salad.
Scramble Flavor Booster: Add 1/4 tsp. celery seeds or cumin and 1 Tbsp. fresh lemon or lime juice to the salad.
Tip: Corn can be considered nature’s sunglasses.  It contains zeaxanthin and lutein, important antioxidants that help break down the sun’s harmful rays that can damage eyes over time.
