Avocado lettuce wraps!

Now, I made these before I started the Whole30 on July 1st, so they aren't totally compliant, specifically the corn. Corn is a grain and is not allowed on the Whole30 or in the paleo diet. But, I love it, especially raw and sweet like in this salad/dip/whatever.   

What you'll need:
  • 1 ear of corn (remove the kernels from the cob with a sharp knife)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 avocado, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 2 Roma tomatoes and 1 heirloom tomato, cut into bite size pieces (obviously, this is what I had on hand, use whatever tomatoes you like, about a cup's worth)
  • 1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 1/4 white (or red) onion, diced (you want the onion pieces to be about the same size or smaller than the corn kernels)
  • the juice of one lime
  • salt, pepper and cayenne to taste
  • lettuce for the wraps (whatever kind floats your boat)
Put everything into a bowl, mix it up and then eat it.  Seriously, that's all. I like to make the mix a little bit in advance to let the flavors marry in the bowl, but you don't have to if you don't want to!
Enjoy!  It's a great snack for a picnic or for parking your keister for a Netflix marathon!
