How to make Avocado Corn Salsa:
You're going to want your corn thawed for this recipe, so go ahead and thaw that corn out first!
Next, in a large mixing bowl, combine the corn, olives, red pepper, and onion. This is the base that is going to give this salsa SO MUCH flavor.
In a smaller bowl, mix up your olive oil, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, salt, pepper, oregano, and garlic. Pour the corn mixture over the liquid mixture and combine well.
Cover that up, and let it marinate in the refrigerator for about 4 hours (we prefer overnight so all the flavors can get happy together!).
Just before serving, slice your avocados and stir into the salsa.
Serve with tortilla chips, on top of tacos, or even on top of fish tacos! The ways to use this avocado salsa are just endless.

What's the difference between guacamole and avocado corn salsa?
Guacamole typically is just avocado with additional spices mixed in (sometimes it will have onion as well). This avocado corn salsa has corn, avocado, peppers, and onion. Guacamole tends to be a bit smoother than this salsa mixture as well.
How long does avocado salsa last in the fridge?
One of the great things about this corn salsa is that it's perfect for making up in advance. In fact, it's a little bit more flavorful if you DO make it up the day before hand so all the flavors can marry together.
If you store this avocado salsa in the fridge in an airtight container, it should last about 3 days. Not that we expect it to stay around that long though because it's so GOOD 🙂
