Tomato, Corn, Avocado Salsa


I'll pretty much eat anything if it has tomato and avocado in it. Now that it's summer and tomatoes are flavorful, plentiful, and cheap I find myself making salsas all the time. This is one of my favorite because it screams summer!
'
So what do I do with this salsa? Pretty much everything. I've thrown it on top of grilled mahi mahi. I've served it as an appetizer with some blue corn tortilla chips. Last night I served it with black bean quesadillas. And more often than not, I just eat it with a spoon.

The recipe is more of a guideline than a recipe. Feel free to add more jalepeno and onion if you want more heat. My only note: Don't be shy with the salt. All of the ingredients really need it to help their flavor come through.

I love avocado salsa in the summer. It goes great with just about everything! (Ok maybe not peanut butter).

I have had this exact version before - it's so tasty. I recommend eating it with Tostitos Hint of Lime chips!:o)

This is really good with a can of black-eyed peas or black beans added.
