Naturally, Grumpy would not eat this because of the avocado. However, he loved the grilled corn and I have become quite the expert on grilling my corn over the last few weeks! For me however, this recipe is definitely a keeper. I love avocado and everything else in this recipe just goes really well with it. Low-carb, fresh, delicious. Who could ask for more?
