  • Salsa/Relish:
  • 2 large ears of fresh (white) sweet corn, peeled
  • 1 15 oz can of black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2 large tomatoes, diced (about 2 cups)
  • 2 Haas avocados, peeled, seeded and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped red onions
  • 2 Tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 Tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoons fresh ground pepper
  • Chicken:
  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves (about 6 oz each), flattened to an even thickness
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon Creole seasoning


Bring a medium saucepan of water to a boil. Add the corn and simmer until tender, about 4-5 minutes. Drain. When cool enough to handle, cut the kernels from the ears and place in a medium bowl. To the corn, add the black beans, tomatoes, avocados, onions, cilantro, olive oil, lemon juice, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, and 1/4 teaspoon of the pepper. Toss to combine and set aside. Preheat grill to medium heat. Lightly brush the chicken breasts with the olive oil and season each side evenly with creole seasoning and remaining salt and pepper. Grill (or broil) for 10 minutes or until done, turning once. Serve on plate with large portion of relish on top.
