Healthy Recipes: Grilled Corn & Red Onion Salad

Grilled Corn & Red Onion Salad

No grill? Broil the vegetables on high on a lightly oiled baking sheet.


Total time to prepare: 20 minutes

5 ears corn, shucked
1 red onion, cut in half-inch slices
1 green bell pepper, quartered lengthwise
1 red bell pepper, quartered lengthwise
2 jalapeño peppers (optional)
½ cup low-fat sour cream
2 Tbs. lime juice
1 small bunch cilantro
½ tsp. kosher salt
1 avocado, diced
1 head butter lettuce

• Grill the corn, onion, peppers, and jalapeños over a hot grill until lightly charred, turning once. When cool enough to handle, cut the corn from the cobs, chop the onion and peppers, and remove the stems and seeds from the jalapeños.
• Purée the jalapeños with the sour cream, lime juice, cilantro, and salt in a food processor until smooth. Toss with the corn, onion, peppers, and avocado. Serve on the lettuce.

Serves 6.
