SlimCado Avocado Succotash

Succotash defined here loosely as a dish with corn and other ingredients. Avocado makes a terrific 'other' ingredient to combine with corn.

When selecting an avocado, look for one that's almost ready for the guacamole, still able to keep its overall shape yet a little mushy. It's that little avocado and the juice from the cut-up tomatoes that gets distributed everywhere in the salad, making salad dressing unnecessary.

SlimCado Avocado Succotash
Serves 4

1 SlimCado Avocado, cut into cubes
1 lime
1/2 cup kernels of corn
1/4 cup chopped scallions
1 cup grape tomatoes, cut in half
4 leaves of lettuce, your choice
1/8 cup coconut flakes

Sprinkle the SlimCado Avocado cubes with the juice of one lime. Then gently combine the avocado and lime juice with the corn, onions and grape tomatoes. Can be eaten immediately or left to marinate in the refrigerator. Serve on a lettuce leaf sprinkled with coconut flakes.
