You might recall a post here last month about the Amazing Avocado, along with a favorite family recipe. At the time, I was submitting the recipe to an avocado recipe contest (with a grand prize of $5000). Now, a month later, I am happy to announce (if you haven’t heard all of my tweeting and facebooking about it already) that I was chosen as one of the 8 US finalists, to represent the Washington DC area.
Earlier this week, voting commenced. And this is where you come in. If I’m going to stand a chance to get the $5000 grand prize, I need daily votes from everyone and their cat. Each email address can vote once per day. I wouldn’t beg quite so much if there wasn’t $5000 involved. But there is, and I am begging.
Plus, the recipe just happens to be AMAZING. This is not just some recipe I pulled off google and posted on my blog. It is a true favorite, and everyone who tries it is hooked. Trust me.
Fresh Corn and Avocado Salsa
….The salsa that’s as full of variety as the Washington DC region!
1 can corn, drained
1 can black eyed peas, drained
2-3 tomatoes, chopped
fresh cilantro, to taste, chopped (after it’s chopped, mine comes out to about 2-3 Tbsp)
1-2 bunches green onion, chopped
2 avocadoes, chopped
Dry Italian dressing, prepared (or about 3/4 to 1 cup bottled dressing)
* Add all chopped ingredients to a large bowl. Mix the Italian dressing in a separate container, then add all at once to the bowl. Mix gently but thoroughly.
* For a spicier salsa, add chopped jalapenos to taste.
* Serve with tortilla chips or as a topping to just about anything….quesadillas, chicken, salads….
What is your favorite way to eat an avocado?
