Buenos dias, Kenarry readers! I’m Ashlyn from Belle of the Kitchen and I’m back and ready to share a new recipe with all of you for our Ideas for the Kitchen exchange, a blog series where Carrie and I swap recipes once a month. Since Cinco de Mayo is just a day away, Carrie and I decided it would be fun to share recipes that would lend well to helping you celebrate! Today I’m sharing a Corn and Avocado Salsa, which makes the perfect appetizer for your next Mexican-themed fiesta!

If you’re looking for Carrie, you can find her over on my blog today where she’s sharing her recipe for Homemade Pico de Gallo.

Corn Avocado Salsa

I don’t know about y’all, but I could gladly live off of Mexican food every day and be perfectly satisfied. There’s nothing I love more than sitting down with a jumbo-sized basket of chips and salsa and eating till I’m absolutely stuffed, and then wondering how I’m going to make room for the enchiladas I ordered. Do you do that, too?

If you do, I don’t think it’s something that we should feel badly about. I mean, it’s just really hard to have any kind of self-control when chips and salsa are involved, and this Corn and Avocado Salsa is no exception. I love it because it’s a fresh and chunky version, and is packed with one of my favorite foods: avocados!

This is what I put in my salsa. The cilantro is optional. The exact amounts are in the printable recipe card at the bottom of this post.

  • Corn
  • Diced red onion
  • Diced red pepper
  • Olive oil
  • Minced Garlic
  • Cumin
  • Salt
  • Lime

There are really only two steps:

  1. Chop up and mix the ingredients together.
  2. Chill and serve.

That’s it!

How long does fresh avocado salsa last in the refrigerator?

This recipe has lime juice in it. The lime juice will help the avocado last longer and prevent it from going brown. However, I’d still try to eat this within a few days if you want it to look and taste its best.

This Corn and Avocado Salsa is so yummy when you eat it with chips, but I also love to use it as a topping for grilled chicken or fish. You could also stuff it into taco shells for a meatless dinner option, too! Whatever way you like to serve it, it would be perfect for your Cinco de Mayo celebration!
