If you’re going to eat a salad today, it should definitely be this Corn, Tomato, and Avocado Salad.

It’s the perfect quick-fix salad bursting with all those gorgeous summertime heirloom tomatoes and it comes together in minutes.

Grab fresh multicolored heirloom cherry tomatoes, sweet yellow corn, red onions, and all the avocado. Make a quick shallot vinaigrette…toss it all together, and you’re done. It’s summery, healthy, and so good! Perfect for meal prepped lunches, a side salad, or a light dinner.

Enjoy xxx MM
