Summer Corn Salad

We love having fresh garden style salads year round but even more so during the summer. Our Summer Corn Salad is one of our favorites. A luscious combination of sweet yellow corn, creamy avocado, juicy garden ripe tomatoes, subtle vidalia onion, hearty garbanzo beans, and fresh mint & parsley tossed together perfectly with humble extra virgin olive oil. It’s a simple salad that’s full of summertime flavor. You’re going to want to pack this for your next picnic! Recipe below!! 😊



  • 15.25 oz can yellow corn, drained and rinsed
  • 15.5 oz chickpeas, drained (Save the liquid, you can use it in other recipes!Β πŸ˜‰Β Like our Coconut Crusted Squash. Recipe link can be found below today’s recipe.)

  • 1 large handful fresh curly parsley, chopped
  • 5-6 large leaves of fresh mint, choppedΒ

  1. This looks so light and refreshing! And the recipe couldn’t be easier. I love a good salad and will definitely be trying this soon!


      1. Yea I’d like to start a slow transition to vegetarian diet so I’m in search of recipes that are delicious and seem easy to prepare. I always had this thought that vegetarian meals are harder to prepare and not satisfying but it seems I’m wrong. Following your blog now. Thanks for sharing your recipes. 😊


      2. That totally makes my heart smile! I’m so glad you’ve decided to transition to a vegetarian diet and that you’ve decided to follow us as a reference to help you succeed. One of our goals is to help people see meatfree eats can still be fun and tasty! Good luck with your veggie journey! πŸ’š

      3. Thank you! ☺️ That’s a really great advocacy! My journey is going to be challenging. My ethnicity is Filipino and our food is mainly meat-based. But I’m opening my eyes to the health and environmental benefits of plant-based diet so I’ve decided to start the transition. Hoping to be vegan one day but I think vegetarianism is a good place to start. Baby steps. πŸ˜†

      4. Yes, that is how we feel too. Have you tried Sweet Earth brand? They make plant-based chicken that is really good and tastes amazingly close to actual chicken! We like to put in in salad. Most grocery stores have it in the meat dept.

    1. Thank you so much! Cilantro does have a way of taking over a dish, doesn’t it?! πŸ˜‚ We kept it out of here because we wanted to showcase the fresh summery flavors of the corn. So glad you stopped by–hope you enjoy this salad as much as we do! πŸ’š


  2. This is absolutely being added to a dinner for this week and maybe a lunch too. Sounds absolutely perfect for the summer weather and anything with sweetcorn and avocado is a definite winner for me!
