Corn & Avocado Salsa

The day is finally here, Mumford & Sons here we come! Just have to get through a full day at work, then run a few errands and then our friends will be coming for a pre-party at the house. So naturally I’m stressing about the menu. I’m thinking gluten free pizzawill be in order, but I think we also need some snacks… and that’s where this recipe comes into play.

Every time we make this recipe, it gets gobbled up so quickly! I know, I know its not strict paleo, because of the black beans but it is gluten free! And hey, if you want to be strict just don’t add them!
