Avocado Corn Salad

Jun 23rd

It’s been close to two weeks since I last posted. If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram you would know we have been on summer trip number 2 – a road trip to Myrtle Beach and McClennanville, South Carolina (its 30 minutes outside of Charleston and where my inlaws have a place). So if you follow me, you would not only know this, but you would have also been able to see great pictures from the trip, such as this one that I posted on Facebook

and this one that I posted on Instagram.

That’s right. I post different pictures on Instagram then I post on Facebook. Because if you make the effort to look at my stuff on two different places then you deserve two different experiences. I am giving like that. So make sure you are following me on both! And if I follow you on both, and you have noticed that I only like your pics on Facebook OR Instagram, it’s intentional. One picture gets you one like. I’m stingy like that. 🙂

Oh crap. While looking for the pics to post I realized I did post this one pic on both Facebook and Instagram. But in my defense, this is an awesome picture.

Am I right? Michael and Averi have never photographed so well. 🙂

Now that we are back to Miami it’s back to the daily grind. Paying bills, cleaning, and hanging out on the beach. I also just finished watching Friends on Netflix. I was surprised at how many episodes I had forgotten about it. Almost the whole last two seasons! I feel like I am not the fan I thought I was. I am going to have to start using the phrase “lift and slide” and calling myself “Princess Consuela Banana Hammock” to make myself feel like a better fan. 🙂

I am now faced with the difficult task of picking a new series to binge watch. I am open to recommendations, so please feel free to share your netflix favorites. And please make it something that is easy to watch while moving about the kitchen cooking.

I watched two episodes while making this Avocado Corn Salad. It is suppose to be a side dish, but after spending long days in the sun on the beach, this made a great light summery vegatarian meal. It was so good, that Michael, who does not even like corn, ate two servings of it. And if you are wondering why I made a dish that I didn’t think Michael would like, it’s cause corn was on sale 5 for $1 and Averi does love it. And she was obviously my favorite that day. 🙂

I found the original recipe on Cooking Classy. I left out the onion and jalapeño, cause of Averi (cause again, she is my favorite, as Michael loves both of those – ha!) and I added in sweet peppers cause I had them. I also decreased the amount of mayo used, because I don’t like mayo. Plus I wanted the salad to be lighter, and not “dressed” like a coleslaw.

Hope you enjoy it! If you make it, post a pic on Facebook or Instagram, and tag me so I can see your results! Just make sure you post a different picture on each account, so I can like them both. 🙂
