Avocado Black Bean & Corn Salsa

Friday, August 17, 2012

Back in June my brother invited us over to his house for a BBQ and his wife made a version of this salsa. Ever since then I've been crazy about it, like seriously craving it. Corn, black beans, tomato, avocado... how can one go wrong? It's salsa but better! If only it could be made in single servings... ah, one can dream, right? Well, the other day the opportunity arose and I was able to make a big ole batch of it. I had planned on making a new potato salad to take to a picnic but since we were rushed and the kitchen was 80% cleaned & packed, I decided this would be a whole lot easier. I'd say it was the perfect appetizer. Light, filled with veggies and full of favor. The lime juice did its job and kept the avocado from browning (also keeping the pit in helped), so it was pretty and colorful too. Whether you're making some for your family or for a large crowd, everyone is going to love it!
