My kids have been dipping fanatics for many years. Give them something they can put on chips and they are happy campers. This corn salsa dip is special because it is my way of sneaking a few veggies in.
Dips don't have to be full of cheese to taste great!"
Head to your farmer's market and pick up some peppers, corn on the cob, avocado, limes, and cilantro. Everything is fresh and in season right now.
This will be one of the easiest corn and avocado dip recipes that you will ever make.
- Shuck three ears of corn. Toss the wrapper and corn silk.
- Take a knife and slice off the corn kernels over a bowl.
- Cut two avocados in half. Remove the seeds and scoop out the avocado halves. Chop into pieces and add this to the bowl of corn.
- Chop up your favorite peppers. I used orange pepper, but you can use yellow, red, or green bell pepper. Want extra zing? Add in some spicier pepper-like jalapeño peppers! (You know my kids won't eat spicy...so I put this corn salsa salad into two bowls so I can have my spicy!)
- Chop up cilantro and scallions and add to the bowl.
- Lastly, add in olive oil and lime juice. Stir it up, it doesn't get any easier.
Can you use canned corn?
You can use canned corn to make this dip but the flavor will not be as good. Fresh raw corn is a lot sweeter and it really makes this salsa awesome.
This is what the corn and avocado salsa will look like before you mix it all up in the bowl. It makes a great salad recipe too!
You will love that this salad is vegan, Whole30, and naturally gluten free!
