I love, love, love this recipe, especially with good sweet corn. I make it in the winter with a 1lb bag of frozen sweet corn and it’s really just as good that way! Love it as a side dish for any Mexican night, or with chips as a dip.

This is the perfect summer snack. So fresh, crunchy and tasty that I can eat it as a meal replacement! I use it as a topping on fish tacos, too. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I’m reviewing this in December and can’t wait for growing season and my new salsa garden!

I love this salsa. It is a summer staple! I also love that unlike some other salsas there’s no added oil — the fat comes from the avocado, which is just enough.

Those who are Indiana, like me, thank you for giving us such an excellent way to use our corn during the summer months:)

My best friend RAVED about this salsa! I took a fresh dish of it to her house for a potluck and she made me leave all of the leftovers! The cilantro is a must-have; it adds a nice zing to the dish. Love it! I can’t wait til next summer for all the fresh corn and avocados so I can make this again!

Yummy. I added black beans and served it as a taco salad.

Perfect for fresh summer veggies! An ideal topping for grilled fish and seafood tacos. I try to keep this in the fridge all season long!
