Zucchini Avocado Salsa

Z for Zucchini Avocado Salsa under Condiments for BM 32. Chips and Salsa happens to be a favorite snack at home with the kids as well as adults. I was getting a little bored with the regular salsa when I spotted this recipe in a cookbook, 'The Vegetarian Mother's Cookbook' by Cathe Olson.

The salsa turned out to be a super hit at home. It was a delight to have this as part of a snack on a rainy evening! I thought this would also make a great filling for Tacos along with the cooked beans.

Ingredients - 

Zucchini diced 1 cup
Corn kernels (fresh or frozen) 1/2 cup
Avocado peeled, pitted and diced 1/2 - 1 cup
Spring Onion finely chopped 2 Tbsp
Fresh Lime Juice as needed
Lime Zest 1/2 tsp
Garlic minced 1 tsp
Coriander leaves / Cilantro finely chopped 2 Tbsp
Tabasco Sauce / Taco Sauce 1 Tbsp (or as needed)
Salt and Pepper as needed
Olive Oil 2 Tbsp (I forgot to add)
