Recipe: Avocado and Corn Salsa


You Will Need:

1 Ear of fresh corn, cooked and cut off the cob
1 tsp. Frank's Hot Sauce
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro 
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 avocado, diced

What To Do:

Mix all of the ingredients in a bowl. Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour before serving. 

Most of the recipes for this that I looked at called for diced tomatoes and onions and you can add that to this if you like it but the first batch I made was with tomato and onion and didn't like the taste of it together. So I changed the recipe to suit my tastes.

I've been experimenting with several 'salsa' variations to pair with chicken when I make it or to have with vegetables or even on eggs and it's been interesting trying them all out. The most interesting thing I've found out is that avocado pairs well with just about anything. lol

Have you made any salsa's like this and liked it?

  2. This sounds unique and I want to give this a try. Of course, you know I'll have to add in my fave of cayenne pepper. (lol) Hugs...

    1. LOL Yes. I added a little heat with the hot sauce but this can be changed up to suit your own taste.

    1. Oh no. That's not good. I have a milk allergy to avocado and so does my daughter but we still eat it and just deal with the allergic reaction for an hour. lol

  7. Oh this sounds like a lovely fresh recipe for summer. I think you are right that it would be better without the tomatoes and onions. I will have to try this when I can get fresh corn.

  10. Corn is one of my favorite vegetable especially during the summer. I like the addition of Frank’s Hot Sauce and I will also leave out the tomatoes and onions, I think it might over power the dish. Thanks for the great recipe Mary.

    1. It's so good and the fact that Ken liked it too was nice. I've made other salsas that I'll be sharing but this was a really nice one.

  13. I think I might be the only person in the world that doesn't like avocados. I generally like homemade tomato salsa. I can live of that stuff. There are times where I will make it and eat chips and salsa for lunch and dinner all weekend. :-)

    1. There's a lot of people that don't like them. People make fun of Californians because they put avocado on everything.

  14. I love avocado. It's high in fat so I limit how much of it I eat. Great recipe.

    1. That's very true. So many of the diabetic recipes have it as an ingredient though.

  15. I can't have tomato or onion so your version sounds perfect (and delicious) for me.
