Corn & Avocado Salsa

If you love salsa and quick recipes, you will love this idea! Keeping a couple of ingredients on hand, like frozen veggies and jarred salsa makes creating dishes a snap – and frozen/canned vegetables provide nutrients – so they are good options if you travel for work or don't get to the store that often. Fresh additions like avocado, lime, and onion along with cilantro and cheese make this special enough to serve to guests – but it's easy enough to make for yourself, after a busy day, too.

Active Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 15 minutes

Amount: about 4 cups

1 (16 ounce) package frozen super sweet white corn, thawed

1 ripe avocado, chopped

¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro
