This Chicken Avocado Corn Salad is the answer to your sick-of-ordinary-salads prayers. Chock full of tasty chicken, sweet corn, creamy avocado, lime, and chili powder, this is a great dish to share — though you might just want to keep it all for yourself!

2-3medium-large avocados, diced

Brush corn with olive oil, season generously with salt and pepper to taste. Grill over high heat for 6-8 minutes, turning throughout, until kernels begin to char a bit. Use a sharp knife to cut corn off the cob.
In a medium bowl combine corn, chicken, avocado, cilantro, and onions (if using).
Whisk together dressing ingredients. Pour over salad and toss to combine.
Serve immediately, or cover tightly and store chilled up to 8 hours. (If serving after chilling, take it out of the fridge about 30 minutes before serving - it tastes best closer to room temperature)
This makes enough to feed 2-3 hungry people for lunch as a main dish, or about 6-8 people as a side dish.
