Roasted Corn Salad

My sister was visiting us this weekend and asked me to please give her the cowboy salsa recipe we made the last summer when she visited. I am posting it because it is so good, and with summer right around the corner, it's the perfect recipe to share. I got this recipe  years ago from a friend who got the recipe from our local Trader Joe's.  It is made using one of my favorite Trader Joe's products, roasted corn. It can be made with frozen or canned corn as well. Either way, it's just good eats. Enjoy!

Roasted Corn Salad

1 bag Trader Joe's roasted corn, thawed or 3 cans of corn, drained
2 cans black beans, drained
1/4-1/2 c balsalmic vinegrette
1/2 small red onion, diced
1 can tomatoes with green chlies, drained
1/4 c chopped cilantro
1 clove minced garlic
2 avocados, diced (add this last so they don't get too mushy from stirring)

Mix all ingredients together and chill. Serve with your favorite homemade or store bought tortilla chips.
