Holy cow, y’all…

This stuff is dynamite-good.  Seriously.  I should know, because I just ate the whole damn thing.

Summer tomatoes, corn, crab, and avocado salad

When I saw the recipe title I just kept reading on and drooling because this salad has all the stuff I love most in it.  Except gravy.  That would just be weird.

But listen:
Fresh roasted corn.  Avocados.  Fresh-from-the-garden tomatoes.  Lime and olive oil and crab.  Oh, yeah.  What’s not to like?

I found the recipe here, but I’ll tell you how I made it.

First, I took two ears of perfectly young and fresh corn on the cob, and I rubbed them with olive oil and I roasted them at 400 for about 20 minutes.  While they were cooling, I made the rest of the salad.

I juiced a lime into a bowl, and added just a small amount of finely chopped sweet onion and a teaspoon of olive oil.  That sat there taking the edge off the onion.  Then I diced up a super juicy tomato, a small avocado, a handful of cilantro, and a little hot chili pepper (because if you know me, you know if it’s good, it’s better spicy).  I threw that all into the bowl with the lime juice, then I cut the corn off the cobs and added that.  Finally, I opened a can of crab meat (I know–but that’s all I had on hand; if I’d known how good this would be I would have made a run to the store for some nice lump crab meat, but it was plenty good as it was).  I added the crab, and then I just stirred it all up and ate it.  All. Of. It.

Holy cow.  Keeper.
