My Favorite Corn Salsa

Looking for a delicious, summery, and super easy snack to bring to that Labor Day cookout? This corn salsa is my absolute favorite. It's light and flavorful and actually healthy!


Take 6 ears of (uncooked) corn and carefully slice off the kernels into a large bowl.

Chop up an avocado into tiny peices. Don't know how to chop one? See here.

Dice up one small red onion.


Dice up 2-3 plum tomatoes. I prefer plum because they have the least goop inside, still scoop out the seeds anyway!

Squeeze 2-3 limes over everything and mix well.

The original recipe calls for a bunch of finely chopped cilantro too but a. I forgot it and b. my sister hates the stuff so it isn't essential.

Stir very well and serve on corn chips! I prefer the blue variety.


For alternative uses, bake on top a piece of salmon, or add chunks of grilled chicken and corn chips for a delicious cobby salad.
