Summer and Avocado-Corn Salsa

By the school calendar, summer is over! And  although I am ready to get back into a more structured routine, I miss it already.
Our summers are usually a whirlwind of trips, activities, and projects; this summer did not disappoint!
We did, however, stick pretty close to home. {With the exception of a church Camp-out and a few Eastern Washington trips.}

Some of our summer favorites...

Hadley's first Fourth of July!

Favorite recipe of the summer...

Grilled Chicken with Avocado -Corn Salsa

  • 3 1/3 tbsp fresh lime juice {I use 2 limes}
  • 4 tbsp chopped cilantro {or more}
  • 1/4 tsp Kosher salt & pepper {to taste}
  • 4 {6 oz} Boneless/skinless chicken breast-halves
  • 2 ears fresh corn {we use white}
  • 1 large ripe avocado
Combine 2 tbsp lime juice, 2 tbsp cilantro, and Salt & Pepper in a large Ziploc bag; add chicken. Now, shake around a bit to coat the chicken, then refrigerate at least 20 minutes. Grill Chicken.

To prepare Salsa- Grill corn till tender {or microwave in a  shallow dish with 1/4 cup water and covered for 2 min.} Use a large knife to cut the corn from cobs. 
Combine corn kernels with avocado, cilantro, lime juice, and salt & pepper.. then serve over grilled chicken!
{This is really so yummy that the salsa could be eaten as a salad.} 
{I do ;o)}
