Fire Roasted Corn, Tomato and Lime Salad

Corn, Tomato and Lime Salad

This is a great staple to use as a condiment or you can make into a complete meal by adding  1 cup of quinoa or 1 can of black beans.  Adding shredded diced avocado ups the healthy fat.  Serve as a meal over a bed of spinach.

 Ingredients:

  • 4 cups frozen yellow corn, thawed ( I like using fire roasted frozen corn)

  • 4 Tbsp chopped cilantro

  1. Combine all the ingredients and refrigerate for about an hour.
