This Corn Tomato Avocado Salsa Salad is perfect for summer. Serve it as a dip for an appetizer, salsa on top of grilled chicken or fish, or as a salad.

What’s the difference between a salsa and a salad? It seems the lines are blurred these days. I used to think of salsa as the tomato salsa you find at Mexican restaurants. But lately, salsas seem to be everywhere and include corn, beans, fruit, cucumbers and just about any vegetable.

This past weekend for Father’s Day, we fired up the grill to make grilled chicken with an assortment of salads, including this Corn Tomato Avocado Salsa Salad. I’m calling this a salsa salad because my original intention was to serve this on top of the grilled chicken. But as I got thinking about what vegetables I would serve alongside the chicken, I decided to serve this as a salad instead.

This salad is full of summer flavors and would be great if you have some fresh basil to toss in. Serve it as a dip, on top of grilled fish and chicken, in tacos, or as a salad like I did. It makes a great afternoon, poolside snack too!

  1. The colors in this salad are so vibrant and gorgeous!

  2. Thanks Christine – loving easy salads this summer!

  3. So many delicious flavors in this salsa/salad! We fired up the grill for Fathers Day + a joint Birthday celebration for my husband, including two of his favorites-corn and grilled lobster tails :-) Definitely will be making this over the summer!

  4. Maybe the difference comes in how you eat it? Salad with a fork and salsa scooped up with tortilla chips. I could see myself eating this both ways…or just by pouring the whole bowl into my mouth. Bet it tastes like summer!

  5. What a perfect summer side dish!

  6. I would definitely eat this as salad or a salsa. Gorgeous!

  7. I love corn salads Jeanette!! And cilantro mmm. Hand me a huge bag of chip please :)
