  • 2 teaspoons Kosher Salt plus more to season at the end
  • 4 ears Sweet Corn Husked, scrubbed to remove the silks
  • 1-2 tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 1 cup Chopped Fresh Tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup Chopped Red Onion
  • 1 small Ripe Avocado Peeled, pitted and chopped
  • 2 tablespoons Minced Fresh Cilantro
  • 1 Serrano Pepper Stem and seeds removed, diced
  • 1 Jalapeño Stem and seeds removed, diced
  • juice from one Lime


  • Fill a large pot of water, add 2 teaspoons of salt and bring to a rolling boil. While the water is heating, heat the grill to 400°F. When it reaches 400°F, clean and oil the grill.
  • Place the corn into the boiling water and cook for 5 minutes.
  • Remove with tongs, allow excess water to drain back into the pot and pat with paper towels to dry.
  • Lightly brush the corn with the olive oil and place on the grill, turning every 30 seconds to a minute, allowing browned spots to form. Total grilling time will be 2-3 minutes.
  • Remove corn from the grill and allow to cool for 5 minutes.
  • Remove the corn kernels from the cob with a sharp knife and place into a medium-size mixing bowl.
  • Add the tomatoes, red onion, avocado, cilantro, serrano, jalapeño, and lime juice, and toss to combine. May be served immediately or covered and refrigerated for a few hours to allow the flavors to blend. Salt to taste prior to serving.
