In my world, everything is better with avocado.  Don’t you agree?  I just love the creaminess avocado adds to salads.  Yum!  I hope you enjoy this salad as much as I did.   It would be a great dish to take to a backyard party.

  1. Looks yummy, but I would leave out the corn. I believe that most corn is genetically modified and you don't want to eat that if you want to be healthy.
    1. You can eat corn, just make sure it has been non GMO verified. We bought 48 ears of organic non GMO corn from our co-op. That is the corn we used in this recipe.
