I am so happy we have finally found our way to warmer weather. Blazing sunshine. I sure do love it a lot more than the cold and snowy days.  A hot car waiting for me after spending 8 hours in a freezing cold office. That’s what it’s all about (well until you leave the top layer of skin from your hand on your steering wheel because it’s so dang hot). No but really, I’ll take capris and shorts over slush-drenched jeans any day!

You know what I’m not into though? Turning the dang oven on and trying to cook my way through summer. I want nothing more than to eat salad for every single meal from about May through September. The thing is, I cannot get my 7 year old to make a meal out of a salad. Sure, he will manage a side salad, but that’s about the extent of it. So how do we make our worlds collide while trying to keep the kitchen as cool as possible?

Obviously, switching on the grill is the first step. Grilled corn on the cob is a definite favorite around here, for both my kiddo and myself. I can easily serve that alongside a grilled veggie burger for him. For me, I make something a little lighter and more refreshing for my grown-up tastebuds.

Honestly, I’m still dreaming about this salad. I ate it for about 4 days and I never wanted it to end. There’s no need for a dressing because of the avocado and lime juice. It’s just perfection. The charred corn brings on the taste of summer. The radishes bring an added kick to the plate. All in all, this salad is everything I could ever ask for during the summer. And I’m not left feeling like I missed out on all the yummy grilled food just because I want to eat healthier!

      Gosh, I only wish I could get my son to eat salad as a main dish! And to also eat avocado. But he wanted no part in trying my salad 🙁

    I like spicy food but this was almost inedible it was so hot. Otherwise it was delicious. I added grilled chicken for a protein boost.

      oh no! I’m so surprised to hear that because I think it’s a very mild salad. I wonder if your radishes were just extra spicy. so sorry!
