Recipe: Avocado Corn Salsa!

I have been eating vegan since January 1st and I must say, I feel great! I've also lost about 12 pounds, which is a nice added bonus. The last week or so, I've been struggling with meals and snacking. Lets face it, you can't just eat steamed veggies for every meal. So, I've been trying to get creative.

I love salsa and guacamole. Combining them into one dish seemed like a great idea so this is what I came up with: Avocado Corn Salsa!


2 Cups Frozen Sweet Corn
2 Avocados Diced (add some lime juice to prevent browning)
3 Tbs. Minced Cilantro
1 Cup Cherry Tomatoes Cut in Half
1/4 Cup Diced Red Onion
1 Cup Diced Cucumber
4 Tbs. Olive Oil
2 Tbs. Balsamic Vinegar
Garlic Powder, Salt & Pepper to Taste


Place the frozen corn in a hot saute pan. Saute for 3-5 minutes until corn is slightly brown. This step gave the corn almost a smoky flavor. Let the corn cool and add all ingredients to a large bowl. You can serve immediately or let it chill in the fridge for a few minutes.

Be sure to adjust the spices to your taste and serve within an hour or so. The avocado will eventually start to brown.

I ate this with some tortilla chips but I bet it would taste amazing as a wrap in a whole wheat tortilla.
