AVOCADO CORN SALAD

This is more of a summer salad, however, with it being the beginning of the year everyone is trying to get back into the swing of eating healthier.  In the summer I make this with fresh cut corn, but this time of year frozen will do just fine.  This is a recipe that I modified slightly from Paula Deen.  I hope that you enjoy.

Ingredients:
  • 2 cups fresh corn or thawed frozen corn
  • 2 avocados, chopped in bite size pieces
  • 1 pint grape tomatoes, halved
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon lime zest
  • 1/4 cup fresh chopped cilantro
  • Salt and pepper to taste
Directions:

Combine corn, avocado and tomatoes.  In a separate bowl combine the rest of the ingredients and stir together.  Blend with corn mixture and refrigerate for at least one hour before serving.

I like this salad it works well together. In Florida we often eat like it's summer, and you can't go wrong with avocados!

I agree Joanne, it might be the only recipe that Paula Deen makes that doesn't call for butter...LOL!

Thanks for stopping by Nic from half way around the world. I'm jealous that it's summer there right now and it's frigid here.
