Ingredients

  • 3 ears of sweet corn, shucked
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 large cloves of garlic
  • 2 ripe Hass avocados, roughly chopped

  • Allow corn to cool.
  • Cut the kernels off the cobs and place in a medium bowl.
  • Scrape the cobs with the back of a knife to release the milky juices.
  • In a food processor or blender, puree half the kernels, all of the milky juices, and the garlic and then transfer the mixture back to the bowl with remaining corn kernels.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients and stir to combine.

Notes

Got this from one of my favorite grilling cookbooks --Weber's Real Grilling. I was looking for a grilled corn salsa and this absolutely fits the bill. They had it as an accompaniment to grill New York Steaks.
