It’s Meatless Monday! And I’ve got a salad for you.

The last thing I want when it’s hot outside is a heavy, cooked meal. Here is a light recipe for avocado salad that I have to admit has become an obsession in our house. And the best part is it only takes 5 minutes to make. Really.

And yes, I know, some of you avoid avocados because of their fat content. But the truth is avocados have monosaturated fat (the good kind), which helps to lower cholesterol. They also provide nearly 20 essential nutrients, including fiber, potassium, vitamin E, B vitamins and folic acid and blah, blah, blah. Look, they taste delish and they’re good for you. Enough already. Try the salad.

1 medium avocado, diced

¾ cup corn(you can use frozen)

1 tomato diced

1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro

2 teaspoons lime juice

salt and pepper to taste

optional add ins:

red pepper/yellow peppers diced

red onions

Toss all together and enjoy plain, over salad, as a dip or a topping over your favorite dish.
