I have seen many variations of this dish, (so giving credit for the recipe would be a long list) and while every recipe I have seen calls it a salsa, I call it a salad.

I do not eat it with chips like you would a salsa, I eat it as a side dish, like you would a salad. In my mind salsa has more of a sauce-y consistency. I also am not a big fan of cilantro and neither is anyone in my family, weird I know, so I leave it out. You could add a couple of tablespoons in if you like.

This dish has awesome nutritional value, being high in fiber, potassium, iron, protein, and vitamin C. The fat is mainly from the avocado so it is the “good” fat that our body needs. It is a nice light, summery side dish that I usually serve with Mexican food or fish. For more information on the health benefits of avocados visit www.well-beingsecrets.com.

  • Prep Time: 10m
  • Total Time: 10m
  • Serves: 4

Ingredients

  • 1 avocado, diced
  • 1 cup frozen sweet corn, thawed
  • 1 cup black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/4 cup red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 roma tomato, seeded and chopped
  • 1 jalapeno, seeded and chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh squeezed lime juice

Instructions

  1. Combine ingredients in a medium bowl. Refrigerate until ready to use.

I have noticed that the avocado still turns brown if you make it too far ahead. I just wait until I am ready to serve it and then I dice the avocado and put it in each serving. For this reason I don’t think it stores well with the avocado in it. When I have leftovers I will add fresh avocado the next time I serve it. This will change the nutritional value, but in a good way because avocado is good for you.

      I grew up in Southern California and we had an avocado tree in the back yard! I think that is why the ones I buy at the store, here in the middle of the US (Kansas) just aren’t anywhere near the quality of those. Thanks for stopping by!
