Good salad, but I think we would prefer the tomatoes raw next time. We used corn hand picked that day, so you can never go wrong with that. We did not add honey (personal preference). We BBQ'd the green onions on low, but they were pretty burnt by 3 minutes - not sure how to fix that. We just removed the black ends and added what was left. Avocado would be great in this.
