Summer Corn Salsa Salad

Last week,  as part of my kids camp field trip, the group went corn picking at the Quinn farm (a great family activity to do & one of the kid friendliest farms in town - Montreal, Quebec). Needless to say I have my share of corn stocked up in the pantry (would anyone like to pick some up from me? ;)  I can write a recipe book just on corn-based ingredients. From tacos, corn chowder, rustic corn side dishes, corn bread, corn scones, caramel popcorn, corn-dogs, corn-cats.... ?&*^% (just kidding, just trying to be cute). In all cases, corn recipes are fast and easy, sweet and crisp (or creamy- depending on the can). There are so many kosher canned corn brands, i.e. IGA's Nos Compliment or Loblaws President Choice brands are kosher. Along with Martha Stewart's corn recipes, Nos Compliments shares a range of corn recipes on their website. Again, corn makes for non-fail recipes and this corn salsa (not so really salsa salad)  was made in no time. I won't specify the quantities on this one because you can tweak to your taste by adding vegetables you love. Flexibility is sometimes a good thing :)

  • 1 avocado
  • diced red pepper
  • salt & pepper to taste
