Avocado and Sweet Corn Salsa With Homemade Chips

| 5/28/2014 10:43:00 AM

On Memorial Day weekend, I don’t know about you, but I am excited to BBQ with friends and just enjoy the official beginning of the summer season. In the south, we tend to think summer starts as soon the temperatures warm and the lake is ready for boating. Summer is truly a welcome friend.

Tonight, a few of us are getting together to grill, drink, and be merry. The hostess asked me to bring a chip and dip platter, as well as my husband’s famous homemade ice-cream (look for his recipe in another upcoming post). I wanted to do something using fresh, seasonal ingredients when it came to making my dip. Avocado, sweet corn, onions, cilantro, and lemon came to mind. I love to use what I have on hand, and I’ve been stockpiling these ingredients, as they are all in season in my part of Oklahoma. After concocting the perfect medley of flavors for my dip, I made a batch of homemade chips from whole-wheat tortillas I regularly keep in the fridge. So please, make and enjoy the best that local, seasonal produce has to offer. You will be oh-so-glad you did.
