Corn and Avocado Salsa






This recipe lends itself to so many different occasions because the



flavors are fresh and the colors are vibrant.  It's perfect for a buffet,



especially when served in individual portions.  
















































































About the Ingredients:




•  Corn-Use fresh corn if possible; I have used frozen corn that has



    been thawed under cold running water and drained well.  Canned      

    corn does not work.




•  Avocado-There is nothing like the flavor of a fresh avocado or two. 



   The color adds so much to this dish.




•  Red onion-I like to use it because of the color and milder flavor.


•  Tomato-It adds a splash of color and flavor!




•  Bell pepper-Green or red, doesn't matter.  Adds additional sweetness

    to this tasty dish.


•  Garlic-Has to be fresh; minced or finely diced. 




•  Cilantro-Chop to a ½-inch dice so there are no big pieces.


•  Lime-Fresh juice and the zest for garnish.

Corn and Avocado Salsa 

Fresh corn makes all the difference in this dish, and it doesn't



take that much.  I love it as a dip for chips but it also makes a



great salad entree.





•  3 ears of fresh corn, husks and silks removed; kernels cut off


•  1 to 2 avocados, peeled, pitted and cubed

•  1 small red onion, ¼-inch dice


•  1 cup fresh diced tomato (or quartered cherry tomatoes)

•  1 sweet bell pepper, seeded and diced

•  1 clove of garlic, minced

•  ¼ cup of chopped cilantro

•  Juice of 1 lime (save the zest for garnish)

•  2 Tbsp olive oil

•  1 tsp sea salt

•  ¼ tsp black pepper

You will need a large bowl with a fitted lid.



1.   Fold all ingredients in a large bowl, making sure the avocado is well



     incorporated to keep it from browning.  Season to taste.



2.  Cover; chill at least 1 hour.



•  You can add up to 1 cup of drained and rinsed black beans.

•  1 small jalapeno pepper, seeded, and chopped can be added.
