Ingredients

  • 1 16 oz package of frozen corn thawed – or 3-4 ears of fresh corn roasted
  • 1 red bell pepper diced
  • 1 small white onion diced
  • 5-6 oz black olives sliced 1 cup of black olives from the olive bar
  • 4 medium avocados peeled, pitted, and chopped
  • 5 cloves garlic minced

  • 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil

Notes

Substitutions:
Corn - Use fresh, frozen, or canned!  Just boil or grill fresh corn on the cob before removing kernels. 
Onion - You could also use a yellow onion.
Oregano - Substitute 1 tablespoon fresh for the 1 teaspoon dried.
Apple Cider Vinegar - You can also use rice wine vinegar or white vinegar.  
Olive Oil - You could use another neutral oil like canola or vegetable, but I think that the flavor of a good extra virgin olive oil is best.
Make Ahead
Make Ahead by mixing all ingredients except avocados, cover, and put in the fridge. This can be done 1 day in advance.  You can make the dressing up to 4 days in advance. Add avocados right before serving.
