Mexican Corn Salsa and a Beautiful Salad



My husband has been on a Mexican food kick since he arrived home from his last trip. Yesterday he made me plain old beef burritos (our favorite) and whipped up this Salsa as a side/salad/garnish.

It was as beautiful as it was DELICIOUS!

In addition to that, he crafted a simple yet yummy summer inspired salad. It was a memorable meal, and reminded us of Summer on a rainy Fall day!

Salad
Layer Avocado slices, ripe tomato and sweet onion slices

For a quick dressing we used double strength apple vinegar, a bit of olive oil and salt and pepper

Corn Salsa

Roasted corn
diced red and yellow bell peppers
cilantro
banana pepper
salt and pepper to taste
