I have been enjoying the sweet corn lately and I recently discovered that I really like avocados. When I came across this recipe for an avocado and sweet corn salad I just had to try it. The combination of the sweet corn and the creamy avocados sounded really good. Of course the bacon didn't hurt either. I had also been wanting to try this recipe for a creamy salsa verde dressing and I thought that it would go really well with this salad. The avocado and sweet corn salad with creamy salsa verde dressing turned out really well. The avocado, black beans and dressing made the salad nice and creamy and the juicy tomatoes and sweet corn cut through the creaminess. The salsa verde in the dressing added a lot of flavour and a bit of heat to the salad. Overall the salad was a really nice combination of flavours and textures.
