Grilled Corn and Avocado Salsa

My husband brought home this recipe from work the other day! They had it as a sample there and he loved it! So i had to try it out! They actually got this recipe from, so it is tasty and pretty healthy!

3 Medium corn on the cob, grilled, cooled to room temperature (we don't have a grill so I just used 1 can of corn)
1/2 cup scallion or green onion, chopped
1 medium jalapeno pepper,cored, seeded and minced (I omitted this my to cut down on the heat)
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes (I omitted this too because I didn't have any on hand)
1 small garlic clove, minced
1/4 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1 medium avocado, ripe, peeled, pitted and cut into 1/2 (or for more of a guacamole texture mash up a little)
2 Tbsp Cilantro, fresh, minced

1) if using corn on the cob break each ear of corn in half; place flat end on corn and use a sharp paring knife to slice kernels off
2) Place kernals or can of corn into medium bowl; add scallion, jalapeno, red pepper flakes, garlic, cumin, salt and pepper
3) Cover and refrigerate if not using right away
4) Just before serving stir in avocado, lime juice and cilantro.

Yields about 1/4 cup per serving (8 servings)

2 WW Points per serving
