Corn Mango and Tomato Salad

So . . . you may have noticed that it's been a while since I posted.  Life.  Work.  Summer.  Did I mention life?

But as usual I have been busy in the kitchen so I thought I'd share a little something I threw together earlier this week from some fresh corn and tomatoes I got at the Green Market and a mango I had on hand and some scallions left over from a batch of fresh salsa I had made over the weekend.

A friend and I have been getting together to make bread so she can get familiar with the process.  It has been a ton of fun.  We started with Focaccia, then a Turkish flatbread, and then we made this Riga Rye Bread.   It came out really well and she said she couldn't wait to make avocado toast with it.  I just happened to have some avocados so I decided to do the same.  I had already made the salsa so it seemed like the perfect addition.

 And then I bought some fresh corn at the market and had one tomato left that I had brought the week before that needed to be used up so I looked around for an idea of how to use them.  And as soon as my eyes fell on the mango in my fruit bowl I knew exactly what I was going to do.  I had already removed the corn from the ears so I chopped up the tomato, mango, and scallion and threw them in a bowl with the corn. A quick seasoning with salt and pepper, a squeeze of lime juice, and a few tablespoons of olive oil finished it up quite nicely.

It was delicious in its own right but it took a delicious avocado salsa toast to the next level.

I toasted the rye bread and spread it with mashed avocado and then topped it with the Corn Mango and Tomato salad and then topped that with salsa.

In a word:  sublime.

Here's how I did it.
