This Salmon with Corn Salad is a healthy and low fat summer dish. It is so refreshing on a hot day. I love to make this with garden fresh vegetables from the farmer's market.
I made this in my air fryer but you could easily make it in your oven or on the grill. I am always looking for a low fat and healthy fish dish. I recently started eating salmon or another type of fish once a week so this will be in the menu plan for sure. Anything with avocado and I am in. The combination of the corn salad makes for a nice healthy carb if you are carb cycling.
It is the perfect combination with the fresh cilantro, avocado, tomato and corn. I used all fresh but if you are making this off season you could use a frozen corn too.
Best of all this Salmon with Corn Salad is gluten free. I made the entire dinner in less than 10 minutes. I love to use my air fryer or grill on a hot summer night.
