Corn and avocado salsa

This was a very quick and easy salsa to make.  Great with corn tortilla chips or used as a filling in quesadillas or tacos.  And also great with beer.  I made a small batch but it can easily be bulked up.


Fresh corn from 1 cob

1/2 of a brown onion, finely minced

3 roots of coriander (cilantro), finely minced

1 garlic clove, finely minced

1/4 cup of minced fresh coriander leaf (cilantro)

Juice from 1 lime

2 medium avocados, cut in small pieces

1 Tb ground cumin

1 tsp ground black pepper

1 tsp salt

Saute the corn, onion and coriander (cilantro) root in a bit of olive oil until the onions are translucent and the corn is caramelising a bit.  Add the garlic and coriander leaf (cilantro), and saute for a few minutes.  Add the lime, mix a bit, and remove from the heat.  Transfer to a bowl and add the rest of the ingredients.  Mix well.  As a side note, often when you buy coriander leaf (cilantro), it comes with the roots.  The roots provide wonderfully pungent flavour, and should not be discarded. Enjoy!
