~ My 4th Of July Salsa ~

Cassie *


I had an avocado I needed to use, plus some plum tomatoes, left over corn on the cob from dinner and I wanted to come up with a salsa for the 4th. I had bought a bottle of Habanero oil a few months ago, and wanted to try it. So, this is the recipe I created. You can use olive oil if you have no Habanero, it would be just as good. This ended up so darn good. My husband loves it. It didn't last long.
