Corn Salad tips
How to cut corn- I find that the easiest way to cut the corn kernels is to stand the corn up on a cutting board. Then using a sharp knife, slice a strip of the kernels downward. Rotate the cob and repeat.
Use fresh corn- Freshly harvested summer corn gives you the sweetest and best flavor for your avocado corn salad.
