Simple & Quick Corn & Avocado Salad

For Cinco De Mayo, I decided to have a bit of fun with Makenzee! We ran to Fry’s and picked up some of our favorite ingredients to make tacos, rice and beans! We decided that a corn and avocado salad would be the perfect addition to our Cinco De Mayo feast!

We picked up some random ingredients and it turned out so amazing that I thought I should share it with you guys!!

Here is the final dish

On top of being DELICIOUS, it was so easy and quick to make! And has saved so well (I actually just got done eating some of it leftover)!

Here is my recipe!

Ingredients:

  • 3 Cups of frozen corn (cooked) – Can use fresh, but lets face is – I am a busy mom who doesn’t have time for all of that
  • 1 jalapeno (seeded and diced)
  • 1/2 of chopped cilantro
  • 2 Tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1/2 C of diced rec onion
  • 1/2 Tablespoon of lime juice
  • 1 Peeled, cored and diced avocado
  • 1/2 C Cotija cheese (can substituent feta, but it isn’t as good)
Dressing
  • salt and pepper (to taste)
  • 2 Cloves of minced garlic
  • 3 Tablespoons of Mayonnaise
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
  • 2 Tablespoons of lime juice (fresh preferred)
Mix – 
  • While the corn was in the microwave, I combined all of the ingredients for the dressing and whisked. Then set aside until the rest of the salad was ready. 
  • Add corn, diced onion, cilantro and jalapeno in bowl and mix together
  • Put fresh lime juice on avocado and add to the salad
  • Drizzle olive oil over entire salad then add the dressing and mix well
  • Last, add 1/2 C of Cotija cheese and mix well
*Serve warm OR cold

Published by Not Ur Average Mom Of 5

Most importantly, I am a mother of 5. I don't have your typical happily ever after family. I am divorced (one of those nasty messy ones), I have way too many bills (don't we all) and I really don't have any interesting hobbies (wasn't always that way, I grew up riding horses) I am in a relationship with the love of my life and my happily ever after. He is the most amazing and loving person I have ever met. Payton deals with my crazy life and family and embraces is with so much love and support. He is the BEST dad and father figure I know). He is an Engineer for our local fire department and that is HARD. I honestly am so proud of him and so proud of what he does BUT I HATE his job, I hate nights away and I hate the time it takes from our family. People don't realize how difficult it is. At the end of the day, I am so thankful for him and our life together, I can't wait to spend forever with him. My kids....they are terrorists. Seriously. I grew up as an only girl out of 4 total kids. I always wanted 4 kids - 2 girls and 2 boys. Well, the big man upstairs had other plans! I am bless with one daughter and four sons. My daughter is the oldest. Makenzee Adele is 11, going on 18. She is smart and hardworking and LOVES school. Caleb is next. He is 9 and so loving. He works really hard in school and loves baseball. Next is Connor. He is 7 and very advanced in school. He hates doing any school work and has the silliest personality and can light up a room. Connor plans to play professional football for the Arizona Cardinals when he grows up. Moving forward is Keegan. I had the worst pregnancy with him. I had Hyperemisis Gravidum and was on home IV and Zofran for the majority of the pregnancy. He was born healthy and is 4 and a wonderful boy who causes more trouble than necessary (he was recently diagnosed with Autism and ADHD). Lastly is Rhett. He is the baby and loves getting treated like he is. He was born April 5 (I am seriously not changing the months constantly) and LOVES cuddles possibly more than his dad. So that is a bit about me and my family! Subscribe to my blog to read more about my WILD ride!!
