A wonderful recipe for you . . .

A sweet friend of mine, Jeni (our stitchery artist at The Plum Tree), dropped by the store last week and brought me a gift. Don't you love gifts? Any size, any kind ~ I love them.

Anyway, she brought me a can of mexicorn and a recipe card. As soon as I looked at the ingredients, I knew my husband would LOVE it!

He made the recipe the next evening and well, much to my surprise, as I have never been fond of avocado, I could not get enough of it!! I wanted to share it with you. You may already make this but if not, here it is for you to enjoy.

Thank you sweet Jeni!

Mexicorn Salad
  • 2 ripe avacados, peeled & diced
  • fresh chopped cilantro (we didn't add this, and it was still delicious)
  • diced tomato or halved grape tomatoes
  • Jack & Cheddar cheese, grated (we want to try Pepper Jack next time!)
  • 1 can of drained black beans
  • 1 can of drained mexicorn
  • The juice of 2 limes
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 teaspoons minced garlic
  • salt to taste
Add all indredients to a bowl and toss with dressing ~ enjoy!
