Corn, Avocado, and Tomato Salad

Tomorrow, is the official start to summer. It’s also my sixth wedding anniversary. Seriously, I’ve been married six years–where the heck has the time gone? One thing I’ve learned about being married to my husband over the past six years is that he is a “dip” guy. He loves chips and dip and if he could have chips and dip as a meal he totally would. However, being the loving and nurturing wife that I am I will not allow a meal of only chips and dip. Instead I added other components to the meal like my Chipotle Chicken & Bacon Baked Quesadillas.

I struggled on what to call this side dish. In the end I decided on Corn, Avocado, and Tomato Salad. I ate it as a side dish with my quesadillas. However, my husband turned it into a dip. Bite after bite was consumed with a chip in his hand. I also scooped some of the salad on to my plate. My husband scooped up each bite directly from the bowl. Even at dinner that night we both debated about what to call this side dish. In the end, I won with Corn, Avocado, and Tomato Salad. Because let’s face it–the wife is always right, and well… after six years my husband has learned to pick his battles!

I shared my recipe for Corn, Avocado, and Tomato Salad over at The Law Student’s Wife. Head on over to get the full recipe and read about her amazing host parents in France. Erin is spending four (yes, you read that correctly) weeks in France with her husband. Her husband who just so happened to graduate from law school! I’ve been living vicariously through her blog post, and if you like to travel I think you should too!

    Katie, I went there and bookmarked your recipe (and printed it out—hubby and I would eat it, but our 15 year old son’s not an avocado eater!). Congrats to you and your husband tomorrow! Just wait till you hit your 25th anniversary!
