Ingredients
  

  • 2 cups Corn 2-3 ears cooked and removed from the cob
  • 2-3 Avocados diced
  • 15 ounce can Black Beans drained and rinsed
  • 1 large Tomato diced
  • 1/4 cup Red Onion finely diced
  • 1 Jalapeno Pepper seeded and finely diced
  • 1 Lime juiced
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 2 Tablespoons Cilantro fresh
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon Black Pepper
  • pinch Cayenne Pepper

Instructions
 

  • Add all of the ingredients to a bowl and combine.
  • Cover and chill for 30 minutes.
  • Stir prior to serving.

Notes

  • If fresh corn is not in season, I recommend substituting shoepeg corn (frozen and thawed)).
  • Make sure your avocados are not too ripe!
  • Place the avocados in the refrigerator for 15 minutes prior to cutting for easier handling.
  • If you do not want your salad to be spicy, you may omit the jalapeno and cayenne pepper and substitute scallions for the red onion.
  • If you want to spice things up, you may add the jalapeno seeds to the salad and increase the cayenne pepper to 1/4 teaspoon.
  • This salad should be consumed within 8 hours of making, as the avocados will brown.
  • Serve this recipe as a side dish, as a dip with tortilla chips, rolled up in a wrap, or alongside eggs for breakfast.
Enjoy!
