If you are looking to make this when there is no fresh corn available you could use frozen corn that you defrost. But if you can get ahold of fresh corn, by all means, it is worth the effort. By effort, I simply mean Grilling it.

HOW TO GRILL CORN:

Simply place your shucked corn on the grill for 8-10 minutes  Be sure to turn the corn every few minutes so it does not burn.

Then cut the kernels off the cob. I hope you have not broken into a sweat, haha. I did try to grill the corn on an indoor grill, definitely, don’t recommend that.

Now mix all the yummy ingredients except the avocado if you don’t plan on eating it right away.  We recommend allowing the flavors to sit in the fridge for several hours to overnight for the best flavor. 

The flavors are so wonderful together and they truly flavor themselves. This salsa does not have any added oils or vinegar, all the flavor comes from the fresh ingredients and lime juice. Fresh and clean eating at it’s best.
