I have learned over the years that adding a simple dressing, sauce, salsa, or salad can take a meal to the next level! Adding a bright and fresh component to dinner can help cut through heavy dishes, add herbilicious flavor, or make plain chicken AH-mazing! This Corn Avocado Lime Salsa does just that.
Lime and cilantro mix with sweet corn and creamy avocado making the perfect accompaniment to any Taco Tuesday or Mexican Themed meal. Heck, eat it as is and your sure to be impressed!
I pair this salsa with my Chicken Enchiladas but it adds such a great fresh, citrus note to any dish that may be heavy on its own. This Corn Avocado Lime Salsa is great garnish or side dish to accompany any vegetarian meal!
- You could easily add Feta cheese or Cotija cheese to make this more of a salad, toss with spinach and VOILA!
- Use this dry salsa as a base for grilled chicken and have a super heathy meal that is not lacking in flavor!
- Add on top of your favorite tacos to make #tacotuesday a hit
