Summer salad

Summer time means it’s time for lots of fresh produce in northern California. What follows is a loose take on a fiesta bowl and making it into a salad version without the rice.

  • 2 tomatoes
  • 1 avocado
  • 1/2 cup corn kernels
  • 1/2 cup peas
  • sprinkle of cumin, salt, and pepper
  • splash of avocado oil

Now, normally I make a tomato and cucumber salad but when I went to Sprouts to get groceries, the avocado was calling out to me more this time. Mm, mm, mm… Especially when I used tortilla chips to help spoon this salad into my mouth. So yummy!

I thought about adding some hemp seeds as a topping later but was already almost done by the time I thought about it. Next time!

What are your go-to summer salads? It’s nice to have variety of lighter foods when it’s sunny and hot out and you don’t want to turn on the oven or cook anything. This one was good in that it’s light and fresh, yet left me feeling satisfied due to the avocado adding some good fats in. I hope you enjoy!
