Mexican Chargrilled Corn Salsa

We love a good salsa and this chargrilled corn salsa with avocado and black beans with a zingy lime dressing is an explosion of flavours. Chargrilled corn, tomatoes, avocado, beans, onion, coriander, garlic and chilli combined with loads of fresh lime juice and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil. Add a little cumin and it’s party time.

Tacos are such a great party finger food, as all the prep is done in advance and this salsa delivers both visually and taste wise. Fresh and clean tasting flavours marry so well with beef, chicken or fish tacos.

Making corn salsa in advance

If you make this corn salsa in advance simply leave out the avocado until just before you’re ready to serve. Avocado tends to brown if it sits around for too long so it’s best to add it shortly before serving.
