My husband Jack and I love avocados – in salads, as guacamole, on sandwiches, you name it! So we’re thrilled that we’ve been asked to share our recipe for Avocado, Corn and Tomato Salad with authentic Avocados from Mexico – just in time for their Cinco De Mayo fiesta!
This salad is chock full of ripe and delicious avocados, sweet pan roasted corn, fresh tomatoes, black beans and a super fresh and flavorful cilantro-lime dressing. It’s heart-healthy, easy and delicious!
And speaking of hearts and love – while you’re enjoying your Avocado, Corn and Tomato Salad, be sure to check out some of the fun ways that the folks at Avocados from Mexico are gearing up for Cinco De Mayo! First up is their I Love Avocados For Cinco De Mayo sweepstakes – a fun photo sweepstakes with some great prizes! All you need to do is post a photo of you and your significant other celebrating Cinco De Mayo with a great dish made with Avocados from Mexico. (Or – if you’re a little shy, you can just post a photo of your delicious avocado recipe!) You can find some great Cinco De Mayo recipes here.
Here’s a photo of me and my sweetheart…
The prizes in the I Love Avocados For Cinco De Mayo sweepstakes are awesome and include:
1st Place: $1000
2nd Place: $500
3rd Place: $250
And, last but not least, you’ll get a free premium version of the Avocado app a fun way to stay in touch with your significant other with instant messages with fun graphics, icons and stickers, sharing information like shopping lists, to-do lists and recipes (great for us food bloggers!), event reminders and photos.
Jack and I have been playing around with the Avocado app this past week and in addition to it just being a lot of fun, our favorite thing about the app is that it’s completely private – we can send silly or serious messages to each other without the prying eyes of our six-year-old seeing something we don’t want her to see (she plays on my iPhone all the time)! The Avocado app is available for iPhone, Android and on the web at Avocado™.
And one more thing – on May 7th between 3:00 and 4:00pm EST there will be an #iloveavocados for Cinco de Mayo Twitter party hosted by @Avocado and @guacgrl! Check it out for a good time and good food – we’ll be at the party too!
And speaking of good food…here’s that recipe for our delicious Avocado, Corn and Tomato Salad!
