Corn Salsa

Took this to Grandmom's (because she worked hard mking everything but the appetizer) for Marc's birthday. Another summer hit. This one was a little unusual. No tomato in the recipe...and of course NO onion for me. The red wine vinegar was different--and fantastic. This was a hit!

Corn Salsa

3 large cans corn (I used 6 cups of frozen, sweet corn)
2 avocados chopped small
NOT 1 red onion
1 red bell pepper (I prefer and used orange)
1 T minced garlic (I used 2+ because I omitted the onion)
1 T ground cumin (probably used more)
1 t crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1/3 cup red wine vinegar
2 T olive oil
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
salt and pepper to taste
*I also added a can of drained and rinsed black beans.*

Mix all ingredients (except avocado--save those until just before serving) and toss at least an hour before serving so flavors can blend.

This was a hit with adults of all ages...and the kiddos! Also would be great on some tacos! I served with Scoop Tostitos.
