Corn Salad

Recipe from  Absolutely Avocados Coobook by my friend Gaby Dalkin of What’s Gaby Cooking!

How To Make Corn Salad

  1. Place a heavy skillet over medium heat. Arrange the bacon strips in the skillet and cook on both sides until the bacon is crisp, 5 to 6 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to dry. Remove all but 1 tablespoon of the bacon fat from the skillet.
  2. Cut the kernels off each cob by laying the cob flat on a cutting board and using a sharp knife to remove the kernels. Discard the cobs and transfer the kernels to the skillet with the bacon fat. Cook the corn over medium-high heat until it is just slightly golden brown, about 5 minutes. Turn off the heat, crumble in the cotija cheese, and add the cilantro and lime juice. Let the mixture cool to room temperature. Roughly crumble the bacon into the corn mixture and toss to combine.
  3. Cut the avocado in half lengthwise. Remove the pit from the avocado and discard. Remove the avocado from the skin and cut the avocado into 1/2 inch pieces. Transfer the avocado to the skillet. Taste and season with salt and pepper before serving. Serve immediately at room temperature, or refrigerate for later. Bring to room temperature before serving.

    The recipe is over here, but in a gist – fry bacon, remove, cut corn off the cob, fry in bacon, add lime juice, cilantro, bacon, crumbled feta, stir, remove from the heat, stir in avocado. Made this twice already and it’s awesome. You’d think lime would kill all the taste, but it doesn’t. Cilantro doesn’t stick out either and feta melts down a bit and adds this very nice creaminess to the whole thing. And fried corn kernels in bacon fat … that’s really quite something.

    Embarassed to say I just tried an avocado a couple of months ago but it was delicious so I bought my first one yesterday to try out.

    My favorite way to eat an avocado is (of course) plain & with a spoon!
    I serve it up for breakfast, though, with an egg cracked into the spot where the pit was removed from, sprinkled with a little bit of cheese & bacon and put in the oven under the broiler. YUM.
    Lunchtime calls for a grilled sandwich of turkey, swiss, spinach, avocado, & ranch dressing!
