Zucchini, Corn, and Avocado Salsa-you will fall in love with this fresh and delicious summer salsa! It is great with tortilla chips or served along side grilled chicken, fish, or your favorite Mexican meal.
Every Sunday we eat chips and salsa for lunch. It is our little family tradition. I know it may not be the healthiest lunch on the planet, but I don’t care. Family traditions are more important sometimes:) I like to mix up our salsa routine so we don’t get bored. Some of our favorites include: Restaurant Style Salsa, Strawberry Mango Salsa, Pineapple Salsa, Black Bean Corn Salsa, and Peach Salsa.
Last week I made Zucchini, Corn, and Avocado Salsa for our Sunday chips and salsa lunch and it was EPIC! It is my new favorite salsa! And since it has zucchini, corn, and avocado I am considering it a healthy lunch choice. Hey, I am getting my veggies and fruits. It is all about balance!
When I told Josh I wanted to make zucchini salsa for lunch he wasn’t excited. He turned up his nose and said he would make one of our standard salsas for himself. I told him to hold the phone and trust me. He agreed to give it a try.
I got to work and created the most beautiful green and yellow salsa a gal or guy could ask for! I was in love before I even took one bite!
This salsa screams summer! It also screams EAT ME! I couldn’t wait to get dipping! I had one bite and new it was a winner. I called Josh into the kitchen and gave him a chip. He crunched away and a smile appeared on his face. He loved it! BOOYAH! My salsa was Sunday lunch worthy! I was almost sad I let Josh taste it. I kind of wanted to eat the entire bowl all by myself. I had to show him how good it was though:)
