Corn Salsa

The sun is finally out and it makes me think of fresh yummy things. This corn salsa fits the bill and is great with quesadillas or just on chips. Feel free to use canned corn if you're having a craving for this salsa and fresh corn is not in season!xo

3 Ears Corn, Husked & Cut off of the cob or 2 Cans
1 Avocado, Diced
1/2 C Jicama, Diced
2 Tomatoes, Diced
1 Small Onion, Diced
1 Jalapeno Pepper, Minced
3 T Fresh Cilantro, Roughly Chopped
Juice of one Lime
2 Cloves Garlic, Minced
2 T Olive Oil
Salt & Pepper to Taste

Place all ingredients in a bowl and combine until well mixed. Serve with chips!
Tip: An easy way to dice avocado is to cut in half lengthwise and remove the seed. Score each half, first lengthwise then across making a cross hatch pattern with a knife all the way to the skin but not puncturing the skin. Your chunks will be larger or smaller depending on how far apart your cuts are. Scoop out with a spoon and you have easy diced avocado.
