Why do I have a new love of facebook?? The ability to keep track of long time friends is amazing! I love that I get to catch up with old and new friends all the time on this new-found technology! We have moved multiple times over the years due to my husband's job but in each place we have met new wonderful friends, yet still miss all our old friends all the time.

In the craziness of life, it is hard to juggle everything and still feel connected to everyone. This is where my love of facebook has started. I was a very reluctant starter but I have jumped in and am having fun with it! I am still trying to get Kim out of the kitchen long enough to sign up...but oh well!

One of the best things is that many of my friends will share their recipes on their facebook pages...and this one...I asked if I could use for our welcoming kitchen blog!

My friend Kathy is a truly amazing wife, mother, and friend! Her husband and I became friends when we worked in Yellowstone for a summer and I am so happy that he married such a cool chic ; ) They are dear friends to us and, although we do not see each other as often as we like...I love them all!

Aren't they the cutest family?!

Enough of the sap...on to the recipe! It is so simple...yet so delicious! Although this sounds like a summer dish...the colors in it made a nice addition to our Christmas Eve tamale dinner! We served it as a side dish...but it was quickly turned into a salsa that was eaten with corn tortilla chips.

Allergy Free Corn & Avocado Salad

2 cans corn
1 diced avocado
1 pint halved grape/cherry tomatoes
1/2 cup green onion

Combine all ingredients and toss with vinaigrette.


2 Tbs olive oil
1 Tbs fresh lime juice
1/2 tsp ground pepper
Sea salt to taste

It was so well liked it was a blur to watch it get eaten ;)

Happy Cooking!

  1. Hi Kim & Megan,

    Don't you just love those simple salads? This one looks delicious! We have Mexican at least once a week and I will add this salad to our repertoire for those nights. Thanks!


  2. Thanks Ellen! Looking forward to review / additions that you might make to vary the salad up! It is a good base salad to get more creative with!
