Kula Corn and Avocado Salsa


This recipe is a favorite in my house served with fish tacos, chicken quesadillas, or just plain ol’ corn chips! Some variations include adding rinsed and drained black beans, fresh jalapeno peppers, and pan frying the corn kernels in a little olive oil instead of boiling the corn first. Enjoy!

  • 3 ears fresh corn, husks and silks removed
  • 2 avocados – peeled, pitted, and cubed
  • 1 kula sweet onion, finely diced
  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded and diced
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/3 cup red wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • salt and black pepper to taste

Place the corn in a large pot with enough water to cover, and bring to a boil. Cook until kernels are tender but crisp, about 5 minutes. Drain, and cool in cold water. Use a knife to scrape kernels from the cobs
Place kernels in a medium bowl. Stir in avocados, onion, bell pepper, and garlic. Add cumin, red pepper flakes, and cilantro. Mix in vinegar, olive oil, and lime juice. Season with salt and pepper.
