Notes

Smart Shopping Tips:
  • Canned corn can also be used. Look for low sodium varieties, and drain and rinse before using.
  • Corn cut from the cob adds a fresh taste. You can buy corn at its peak during the summer months.
  • Select avocados which will give slightly to pressure. Hard avocados are not quite ripe, but you can ripen them at home by placing them in a paper bag for a few days.
Cooking & Serving Tips:
  • Serve with sturdy chips such as tortilla or pita chips.
  • Remove jalapeño seeds and membranes if you want less heat.
  • Add a little chopped tomato for color and texture.
  • Wrap up a scoop of Avocado Corn Salsa in a whole wheat tortilla for a nutritious snack.
  • Citrus juice such as lime or lemon keeps avocados from browning after cutting.
