This Avocado Summer Salad is a healthy side dish full of vegetables and packed with nutrition.

There are so many ways to enjoy avocados. From avocado deviled eggs to quinoa salad and breakfast bowls, you can’t go wrong with this delicious fruit.

In addition to being delicious, avocados are a nutritional powerhouse with nearly 20 vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients in a one-ounce serving. Their creaminess makes them a great substitute for mayonnaise in dressings and dips.

My favorite way to eat avocados is in a salad, and this avocado summer salad is a great example. Whenever I eat a salad that doesn’t include avocado, I’m a little disappointed. Their soft, creamy texture complements the crunchier elements of a typical salad.

  1. I can’t imagine my summer salads without avocado! So needed, so delicious. Love the addition of corn!

  2. Avocados in salads work so well!
    I would miss out the corn (being Paleo, we don’t eat grains and corn, even sweetcorn is a grain). But apart from that this looks delicious!

    1. This salad is very versatile, so you can easily swap out whatever ingredients you don’t want and add something else.

  3. Avocados are meant to be added to salads! Love every single ingredients in this dish, On a side note, I didn’t realize you are a recipe reduxer, Annemarie! Now I know ;). I’m so happy we connected.

  4. This definitely says summer with all my summer favorites: corn, avocado, tomatoes, cucumbers, and bell peppers.

  5. I’m the same way – I’ve gotten so use to putting avocados in salads, something is definitely missing in flavor when they aren’t there 🙂 Love the citrus honey dressing – too 🙂
