Avocado Corn Salsa

If any sort of corn salsa is in front of my face, I will consume it. That’s a fact.

That probably explains why this is the 6th corn salsa recipe that I’ve posted. I will not apologize. I’m perfectly fine with admitting to being a corn salsa addict. It could always be worse.

I don’t know if it’s the youngest sibling in me or what, but I feel this overwhelmingly desire to hover over the bowl and not share a kernel of it with anyone. That is until I realize how psycho I look and mentally have to talk myself into dropping my kung-fu arms, relaxing the protective stance and then finally stepping away (but not too far) from the bowl of salsa. <—- like I said, cray cray.

In this particular salsa, and what’s missing from the other 5 recipes, is avocado. Oh how I love me some avocado! I buy avocado every time I go to the store because we are an avocado-loving family and eat it on the regular; smashed on toast, in salad or as guac. In this avocado corn masterpiece, I grilled up a couple ears of fresh sweet corn, halved some cherry tomatoes and tossed that together with green onion, cilantro, jalapeno, lime juice and a secret, but soon to be not-so-secret ingredient.

After that all that’s done, all that is required is tortilla chips. But we also spoon it on our fajitas, tacos or nachos.  Basically what I’m saying is that even a shovel would as a perfectly good vehicle to get the salsa from point A (the bowl) to point B (your face)- that’s if you can get past me, of course. 😉
