This medley of creamy avocado, crunchy corn and juicy tomatillos has a light, delightfully fresh taste. Its chunky texture makes a colorful topper for grilled fish, fish tacos or chicken, and it’s simply divine in a big burrito salad bowl. Or keep things simple and scoop it up with something substantial and crunchy, like a tortilla chip, a slice of cucumber or a stalk of celery.
This recipe makes about 4 cups of salsa; if you’re serving salsa (or avocado) lovers, you might want to double up!
