Roasted Corn, Avocado, Tomato & Grain Salad

Ingredients

Roasted Corn, Avocado, Tomato & Grain Salad
Ingredients for 4 servings

  • 1 1/2 cups frozen corn
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 cup cooked brown rice (medium-grain or long-grain)
  • 1 1/2 cups cherry tomatoes, quartered (about 12 – 15)
  • 1/2 medium cucumber, diced
  • 1 large ripe avocado, diced
  • 1/2 medium red onion, diced
  • 1 cup finely chopped cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar (OPTIONAL)
  • hot sauce to taste (I used Tabasco)
  • sea salt & pepper to taste
Steps
  1. Set a nonstick skillet or cast-iron skillet on high heat.  Once hot, add the frozen corn and the bell pepper.  Let the veggies rest in the skillet untouched for 1 – 3 minutes until a deep sear appears on the corn and peppers, then mix them together in the skillet using a spatula for another 1 – 2 minutes.  Remove from the heat.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add ALL of the ingredients and toss together.  Season to taste with hot sauce, sea salt & pepper.
