Ok I just finished the salad. I had a cold roasted chicken in the fridge from Costco. I chunked it up and added it to the salad. OH MY. Oral Orgasms.

Does the balsamic/dressing keep the avocados from browning? This sounds divine, but I have fears of including avocado in my work lunches, due to them oxidizing into something far less appetizing to look upon.

I really don't know -- she made it right before we ate it. And it didn't last long enough for the avocado to go brown.

I just googled it. Balsamic vinegar DOES have a high acidic level and that's good to keep the avocado from browning.

But, if you don't want to risk it, you could mix the corn and tomatoes separately in one big container; put the dressing in a small container; peel and cut the avocado in half, wrap each half TIGHTLY in plastic wrap, and just cut it up when you're ready to have lunch.

With all that corn, you can make a bucket of the stuff!

Don't you wish that dogs could digest corn? They'd love the "salad" too, I bet.

This salad is a staple in the MA family. We usually eat it with tortilla chips

So how is it that I had to travel to Ottawa (Canada) to visit my cousin to find out about this deliciousness, M? Hmmmm?

How is it possible that the farmer's market today had exclusively gross-looking tomatoes? What a downer, I wanted to make this.
