During the warm spring months, I start looking ahead to cool summer dishes that are perfect for enjoying outdoors. I’m often surprised with the urge to bring what’s traditionally thought of as summer food into my house weeks and even months before the summer actually arrives but honestly, it’s like I just can’t wait for that sweet taste of summer than my family so adores. Since my whole family is filled with huge corn fans (even my picky littlest will gobble up his corn), sweet corn tends to be one of the first items that signals the coming of summer in our home. And thankfully, I don’t even have to wait for the weather to warm up to start dishing out sweet corn in a variety of delicious ways…like with this amazing (seriously drool-worthy) Sweet Corn, Tomato and Avocado Salsa.
Even since finding this recipe on the Sunshine Sweet Corn website, I’ve been in love. It’s a flavorful combination of some of my favorite foods and whether served warm or cold, it’s seriously delicious! So what makes this dish so great? While all of the ingredients are amazing and come together to create a perfect dish, the real star of this show is the Sunshine Sweet Corn which is grown in Florida and available now!
