Corn and Avocado Salad

I am loving all of the recipes in these summer food magazines. Real Simple's July magazine was full of three ingredient recipes and their tag-line was "Fast, Fresh, Delicious." Well, they were right! This corn and avocado salad was all the above. Serve it as a side with BBQ chicken or bratwursts. You can also serve it on top of a fresh grilled fish such as mahi mahi, talapia or halibut.

I am a food for any dish that has avocado in it - and you've added corn too - another one of my favorites! I think I will be making this salad more than once! Thanks for sharing :)

You've made a dish with two of my all time favorite ingredients- avocado and corn. I love the simplicity of it, and that it's so quick, easy and versatile. :)
