Summer Tomatoes, Corn, Crab and Avocado Salad

Hooray. Another salad that has some of my favorite things in. Combine it together and you have a perfect and quick summer dish. And this is a good looking. So bright and colorful it makes me happy. And my tastebuds.

This could easily be served with chips for a dip, over some lettuce or spinach as a salad, or in a tostada which is what we did. Or you can just eat it plain. Which is what I started doing. But probably should not admit.

So this fun salad would be great for a quick leftover lunch. Yes lunch. I’m back to work which means planning my lunches ahead of time. And even worse, no more wine. Yeah, that is a lie. Now I sip water as I cook meals unless it is Friday or Saturday. Or if the kids are just a little cuckoo. Good thing I love my job.

Back to drinking my water pretending it is something else.
