Avocado and Grilled Corn Salad with Cilantro Vinaigrette

So  I have no idea who pinned this for me to see on Pinterest, but I saw it.  Corn, avocado and cilantro?  Yes, please.  D said the same thing.

The taste was good.  D asked how we missed this recipe. I said because I got it from Pinterest not CL.  He said, "Ah."  Anway, we'll have again.

We had with Herbed Chicken Breasts with Tomatillo Salsa and Queso Fresco.
