This Avocado Corn Salad brings together many of our favorite foods. For example, we pretty much adore avocados. They are on our shortlist of miracle foods for their healthy fat, fiber, and vitamin content. They also pack enough protein to leave you feeling satisfied without weighing you down.
Over the years, we learned to buy avocados green because they resist bruising (just like bananas). Once they are safely resting on our counter, we wait for their skins to turn uniformly dark, indicating ripeness. Then into the refrigerator they go, where they happily keep for several days.
