Summer Sweet Corn Salad

One of the many great things about Summer are the refreshingly cool Summer salads!  There is nothing like one of these crisp fresh salads to revitalize you after a long hot Summer day.  This salad combines sweet crisp corn and the cool creamy avocado.  A light acidic tone from the tomatoes and you have a perfectly balanced beautiful dish!  You can also enjoy this with spicy main dish as the avocado and corn will cool the palette.
