It’s only Wednesday and all that I can think about is the weekend. I just want to wear a cute dress and drink sangria at noon. Is that so much to ask?

Avocado and Roasted Corn Salsa

At least we can make fun recipes when we get home, right? Recipes filled with a ton of colour and fresh summer produce.

BANG! Here you go. I made this sweet salsa in 30 minutes.

Avocado and Roasted Corn Salsa

The ingredient list is simple: fresh summer corn, avocado, tomatoes, cilantro, chives, jalapeño, and some lime juice. We just went ahead and ate it for dinner last night because I love corn chips dipped in stuff more than most things in life and well, why not?!

Avocado and Roasted Corn Salsa

This recipe is adapted from a recipe I saw on the BBQ Recipes page on Ricardo Cuisine. They recommend grilling the corn, but since I don’t have a grill I roasted my corn in the oven. Another solid option would be to use fresh corn straight from the cob if you aren’t into turning your oven on. I am genuinely into all of the options!! Just get that corn into my body.

Avocado and Roasted Corn Salsa

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Yield: 2 1/2 cups salsa


  • 2 ears corn, shucked
  • 1 whole avocado, diced
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1/4 cup grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh chives, finely chopped
  • 1/2 jalapeño pepper, finely chopped
  • Sea salt and fresh cracked pepper, to taste
  • 1-2 tbsp salsa (optional)


  1. Roast corn under your broiler and wait until a few of the kernels turn good and dark. Rotate the corn (every 5 minutes) to get this darkness on all sides. Allow to cool a bit, then cut the kernels off the cobs. Set aside.
  2. In a bowl, combine avocado and lime juice. Add corn kernels and remaining ingredients. Season with salt and pepper, taste and adjust to your liking.
  3. Serve with corn chips or toasted baguette slices.
