    1. Place the corn in a large pot with enough water to cover and bring to a boil. Cook until kernels are tender but crisp, about 5 minutes. Drain and cool in cold water. Use a knife to scrape kernels from the cobs.
    2. Place kernels in a medium bowl. Stir in avocado, red onion, capsicum and garlic. Add cumin, chilli flakes and coriander. Mix in vinegar, olive oil and lime juice. Season with salt and pepper.

    Used different ingredients. I LOVE this salsa!! It's one of my go-to meals actually. I always use a can of corn and I also throw in a can of black beans (both drained and rinsed). I only ever use half a red onion cause I presonally think that the onion taste is WAY too strong otherwise. I let the whole mixture (minus the avocado - since it would brown) marinate for a few hours. When ready to eat, I throw in the avocado (just one) and serve with either lime corn chips or Black Bean Chips. SO DELICIOUS! I think its a perfect dinner for two. ENJOY!  -  29 Sep 2008


    Altered ingredient amounts. I made this for a mexican dinner party and it was delicious. Only had 1 avocado so added 2 small diced tomatoes, and also added a can of black beans. Didn't have fresh oregano so just used a sprinkle of dried oregano. Also used frozen corn as didn't have fresh. Really enjoyed this dish, thanks!  -  29 Sep 2008


    Used different ingredients. Ok, so this recipe cries out for fresh coriander instead of oregano. I make this all the time - is great with chips, in tacos or as a side dish. I often just use canned corn for speed and convenience. Good stuff. Thanks!  -  29 Sep 2008
