Corn bacon and avocado salsa

Truthfully, this recipe was created out of a desire to use bacon in a salsa. The first thing that came to mind? Don't ask why, but it was Cobb salad. Dropping the traditional cheese and hard-boiled egg, this fresh, chunky salsa is great with chips or over grilled chicken.

Ingredients

  • 3 strips of bacon
  • 1 avocado, peeled and diced
  • 1 ear corn on the cob, kernels cut off with a knife
  • 10 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • ½ lime, juiced
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Directions

Cook the bacon in a pan over medium-low heat until crispy, turning as needed. Set aside on a paper towel-lined plate to drain any excess fat.

Combine the diced avocado, raw corn kernels, and halved cherry tomatoes in a bowl. Crumble bacon over the top and mix together. Stir in lime juice and season with salt and pepper to taste.

Salsa Shopping Tip

How hot is that chile pepper? Fresh peppers get hotter as they age; they will achieve a more reddish hue and sometimes develop streaks in the skin.

Salsa Cooking Tip

There are 60 varieties of chile peppers, many of which are used in Mexican cooking. Handle them with care. When handling the spicier kinds, gloves are recommended. Always wash your hands with soap and warm water before touching your eyes.
