  • 1 cup sweet corn

  • 1/3 cup cilantro
  • Juice from 1-2 limes (about 2-3 Tbsp.)
  • 1 large ripe avocado
  • Salt to taste
  • Optional variations: 1/4 tsp. cumin, 1 clove minced garlic, agave to sweeten


  • Rinse and drain beans. Dice tomatoes.

Serving suggestion: before adding the avocado, refrigerate for an hour (or more) before serving to let flavors combine and intensify if you wish. Then add diced avocado when ready to serve.
