Avocado Corn Salad for #SundaySupper

Fresh, ripe summer veggies – avocado, corn, and tomatoes – are tossed with fresh herbs, a little jalapeno, and vinaigrette makings to create a summer side dish or poolside munchie that’s simply irresistible. My favorite way to serve it? As a dip with tortilla chips!

Can you believe it’s football season already? I can’t. Football and baseball seem like the longest seasons in the world to me. To say I’m not a football fan would be an understatement – I’ll do just about everything I can to get out of watching a game, live or on tv. On the other hand, my hubby is a HUGE football fan, particularly college football. So I’m kinda stuck with having the sport on tv a good bit of the time as well as playing the occasional hostess when my hubby’s college team is playing.

Football entertaining in my house is all about super easy dinners or heavy munchies. Chili and buffalo chicken dip are two of our favorites, but really, if I put out some homemade chips and guac, my hubby is happy. This avocado corn salad is equally as easy but a nice change from those old standbys. We like to serve it as a chunky dip with tortilla chips (perfect for game day!), although it can also stand on its own as a side for burgers or tacos. I first tried this salad when my sister-in-law made it, and my hubby and I were instantly big fans. The fresh, ripe veggies shine. Below is our favorite way to make the salad, but adjust the quantities ingredients according to your tastes.

  1. I like football for about a quarter, and then I’m ready to move on with my life, lol. But I love the football food, and your salad would definitely keep me interested for the game!

  2. This is so my kind of salad! I don’t care for watching football on TV, but in person can be really exciting and fun to me.

  3. This is a favorite of ours. We add in black eyed peas to make i t a bean salsa dip!
